    My name is Nicole Derby and I am excited to be starting another new year as School Counselor! Just a little about myself:  I graduated from Currituck County High School and went on to attend UNC (Go Heels!), Elizabeth City State University, and Capella University where I earned my Master's in School Counseling.  I have four amazing children, one precious granddaughter and two crazy chihuahuas!  I love to volunteer at my church, read a good book, and spend the day at the beach!  I am a die hard Tar Heel for life!





    I find that many parents and guardians are not exactly sure what the school counselor does so I found a helpful graphic:


    what do i do?




    I look forward to working with you and your students to make this a great school year! 



    keep calm
