Amy McNair Wheaton
My name is Amy McNair Wheaton, and I am a counselor at Foley Elementary School. I most work with the 3rd and 4th grades. I am an itinerant counselor which means I work at more than one school. This is my 6th year as a school counselor. Before that, I was a teacher for 27 years. Twenty of those years were spent at Foley Intermediate School as a 5th grade teacher. Because I have worked in the Foley schools for almost three decades, I have a deep love for the children of Foley.
I am married to Mike Wheaton. He works at Century Link. We have one son, Taylor. Taylor graduated from Auburn Montgomery with a degree in Economics. We are all graduates of Foley High School. We also have 3 dogs, Ollie, Sissy, and Rawley. They don't realize they are dogs, though, because they are so spoiled! In my free time I like to read, exercise, go to the beach, and spend time with my family.
As a school counselor, I serve as an advocate for your child. I work with the student, parents, and school staff to ensure both academic and emotional success for the student. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have a concern or need assistance. The best way to contact me is via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can also call (943-8861) and leave a message. I will return your call as soon as possible.
