Mrs. Christie Sims

Hi! I'm excited to start my third year at HM Arndt Middle School and my ninth year as a school counselor. Previously, I was a high school counselor. Prior to school counseling, I worked in Human Resources in some local industries. I am a native of Catawba County; attended UNC-Charlotte majoring in Human Services and Lenior Rhyne, Master of Arts, School Counseling. My husband and I have a beautiful daughter and handsome son; we live in the Startown community.

Department Overview

  • School Counselors provide many services to students. The American School Counselor Association defines three domains or areas: personal/social, career, and academics.

    At Arndt Middle School, we are fortunate to have items for students who may have a need. We have a clothes closet with a variety of gently used items for students. We also have the backpack food assistance program available. If your student is interested in either service, please contact Mrs. Sims.
