Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jodi Hutto and I'm the Counselor at Startown Elementary School. I am a graduate of Montreat College attaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Outdoor Education and I completed my Master of Arts in Community Counseling with a School Licensure from Lenoir-Rhyne University. My husband and I have 6 beautiful children, 1 grandbaby and we enjoy spending time with family, friends and participating in anything sports related. I have a love for the outdoors and education is a light in my life. I begin my 17th year of service in education with this being my 16th year here in Catawba County Schools. I'm blessed to be here at Startown Elementary and look forward to a successful 2019-2020!
I am so excited to work with your children, support your family, our faculty, staff and community. My goals at Startown is assisting children to be their very best academically, socially/emotionally, and developmentally while promoting a comprehensive school counseling program. I love counseling students individually, in a small/large group setting and visiting classrooms in order to build positive relationships through character education. My belief is, no matter where we have come from and what our situation is, we all have the power to choose better for ourselves. Taking personal responsibility for our actions and making wise decsions while promoting a positive attitude is important to me.
If your child is experiencing academic, social/emotional challenges or simply in need of an extra person here at school to listen, I am here as a support. Please don't hesitate to contact Startown if you need help. I hope you have a very blessed school year!
