Ms. Beth Embree

I joined the St Stephens Family in 2014! I have served as a school counselor for over 16 years, and truly enjoy the opportunities I have to work with our students, staff, and families every day. As a team, our Student Services Department (Mrs. Jaynes-Counselor, Mrs. Linebarger-Social Worker, Ms. Rooks-Nurse, and myself) collaborate to offer a broad range of services, and hope to provide excellent care to all those we serve. We look forward to working with your family.  It’s going to be another great year at SSE!
