Mrs. Tamara Wilfong is beginning her tenth year as a school counselor and her fifth year at Branson.  Mrs. Wilfong has a Bachelor of Science in Criminology and Sociology from Missouri State University and a Master of Science in School Counseling from Evangel University. 

As a school counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, personal and social development of all students.  I look forward to offering support to the students, staff, families and community.

Throughout the school year, your counseling department will be conducting classroom guidance lessons twice monthly in all K-3 classrooms. Our lessons teach skills that are essential to both social and academic success focusing on core social-emotional skills such as empathy, friendship skills, emotion management, and problem solving.  We also meet with students individually and in small groups when we are made aware of a specific student need. 


Any student can request to meet with a counselor or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator or parent.  I encourage you to reach out to your counseling department if you have any concerns regarding your child.  If you would like for a counselor to meet with you or your child please do not hesitate to contact us.  We are here to serve your student. 


Mrs. Wilfong is a member of the American School Counseling Association, Missouri State Teacher Association and Missouri School Counselors Association.
