Homeless Students Face Barriers to Education in Buncombe County

by Wendy Logan Cuellar, MA.Ed., LPC
School Counselor, Enka Middle School

Growing up, my family didn't have a lot of money, but we always had food on the table and a consistent, stable home to live in. Unfortunately, as a school counselor for Enka Middle School, I see far too many students in my school and across Buncombe County who are not as fortunate.

Meet the New Enka Middle Community School Staff

Alex Woodhouse and Sam Fontaine are the new Enka Middle Community School staff for the 2014-2015 school. They'll serve as the full-time staff members for one year through the Americorps VISTA program. One of last year's staff members, Anna Gettles, sat down with Alex and Sam to find out a little bit more about them. You can also read about Anna's year at Enka Middle online.

My Year as an AmeriCorps VISTA Member

Middle school youth are my favorite age group to work with because of their desire to learn and play at the same time. In this age group students are undergoing immense physical, emotional, and intellectual changes and it can be a difficult time for everyone including students, parents, families and teachers.
