Dear Parents & Students:

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I am your new 8th Grade Professional School Counselor, Ms. Michelle Burger. Although I am new to Lilburn, I am not new to school counseling. I have worked for the past six (6) years at the high school level and prior to that I worked with 8th grade students for five (5) years at Trickum Middle School. 

My prior high school experience makes me uniquely qualified to assist 8th graders as they prepare to transition to high school.  Specifically, I will assist students individually in the areas of academics, behavior, building relationships, time management and organization, as well as goal setting and decision-making. I will also provide classroom guidance lessons and skills throughout the year on the following topics:

  • Preparing for college and careers
  • Developing four-year graduation plans
  • Organization and Time Management
  • Leadership Skills (8th Grade Peer Leadership group)
  • Solution-Focused Communication
  • Conflict Resolution Skills/Bullying Prevention

Our counseling department also offers a wide variety of services to parents and students. Those students in need, can have access to ongoing clinical counseling through our list of resources and services. Detailed information regarding those resources and services is located on the LMS Counseling Program Services page.

I look forward to collaborating with you and assisting your students as they strive to achieve the greatness within!

Best Regards,

Michelle Burger, M.Ed.
Professional School Counselor
