Amy Jamerson     
School Counselor for Class of 2029 (5th Grade)

Hi and welcome to my homepage! My name is Amy Jamerson and I'm very excited to be
the 5th grade counselor at North Windy Ridge for the 2021-22 school year. This will be
my 24th year in Buncombe County Schools. I completed my Bachelor's Degree in
Elementary Education at Appalachian State in 1998. I've always had a special love
of the North Buncombe district where I began my teaching career at North Buncombe
Elementary teaching 4th grade. I then had the privilege of teaching 5th grade Math
and Science at North Windy Ridge. After teaching for ten years, I decided to pursue
my Master's in School Counseling at Western Carolina University. I was a 6th-8th
grade counselor at Enka Middle School for five years until 2013, when I came back
home to North Windy Ridge.

Fifth and sixth graders are so much fun - definitely my favorite age! I love working with
kids to help support them through the academic, emotional, and social challenges of
life at this stage. I also enjoy getting to know students' families and teachers and
working together to help make your child's time here at North Windy Ridge successful
and enjoyable. I work with all students in 5th grade through classroom counseling
lessons. I also work with students in small counseling groups as well as individually
as needed. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you would like to discuss a concern
or share something with me that would help me to support your child this year. For
