Counseling Services

Welcome to the Yellow Breeches Middle School Counseling website!

My name is Elmer Barrick, and I am the YBMS School Counselor. The 2016-2017 school year will be my third year that I have been the full-time counselor, but I started working for the district in 2006. I've previously worked as the Iron Forge counselor while also doing transition activities with 3rd grade and 6th grade.

During the school day, my time is filled with classroom lessons, counseling groups, checking in with students, meetings with teachers/parents, etc. I prefer to be out in the school rather than in my office so I don't have set office hours. Usually the best time for students to stop by my office is at flex or lunch, but it's helpful to check with me beforehand just to make sure that I'm free.

Feel free to look around this site. If there are any specific resources or topics you would like me to address on my website, please let me know. I appreciate any input and feedback from students, parents, staff, and community members.

My office number is:

717-258-6484 X4100
