Meet the Guidance Counselor at Raymond L. Young Elementary {Y.E.S}
Who is Pamela R. Gaddis?
A believer! A daughter, big sister, auntie, neice, mother {times two} a friend, and educator.
She is a doer of unspeakable good deeds. She is focused. She is not idle, but prolific. Her heart is passionate. She is genuine, empathic, and attentive. Her smile is purposeful. She practices truthfulness, confidentiality, beneficence, fairness, non-maleficence, and fidelity. She meets no strangers. She accepts adversity, as well as good fortune. She believes there is a time for everything. She gets excited around children, because they are unique. They are not afraid to smile or cry. They blatantly tell who, what when, where, and/or why. This allows growth to there academic development, personal/social development, and career development. 
As guidance counselor, I am here to encourage, advocate, and inspire every student to achieve his or her best inside and/or outside of our school walls. I am also here to assist in creating a positive school atmosphere that supports academics, personal/social interaction, and career paths. I believe all students regardless of race, socio-economic background, culture and/or religious beliefs should feel protected, supported, and respected while they are at school.
