A note from Ms. Headley:
Hello! My name is Shannon Headley, and I couldn't be more excited to work with VPE students and families this year as Child Guidance Specialist. I spent the first four years of my career as a 4th grade teacher, followed by three years as Child Guidance Specialist at Mary Todd Elementary. I will primarily be working with Kindergarten, 2nd, and 4th grades this year while our other Child Guidance Specialist, Allie Campbell, will work with 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. However, we are both available to assist you with any concerns and love getting to form positive relationships with all students of VPE. We will support your students socially and emotionally with classroom guidance and individual or small group meetings as needed. Please feel free to reach out to us as we want to meet the needs of all students. It's going to be a wonderful year!
A Note from Ms. Campbell:
Hello! My name is Allie Campbell and I am thrilled to be starting my third school year at VPE! Before beginning my roles as a Child Guidance Specialist and District Mental Health Specialist, I served as a Group Leader in the VPE After-School Program while completing my Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the University of Kentucky. I have loved getting to know your students and am looking forward to another wonderful year here at Veterans Park Elementary!
