    Welcome to Mr. Hall's Counseling Page

    As the middle school counselor I am here to work with students in a variety of different ways.  I will be available to students who need help with academic, social, emotional, and career related issues.  Students should feel free to stop in to see me at any time.  My goal is to get to know each student and do what I can to help make this a great year for everyone!
    A little about myself.  I am starting my 7th year as the Middle School Counselor at Hellgate Elementary.  I graduated from the University of Montana's Counselor Education graduate program in 2011.  I love spending time outside with my family enjoying all of the great activities Montana has to offer.
