~*All About Mrs. Beane*~


        My name is Darlene Beane and I'm so excited to serve your children as their school counselor. I'm originally from Huntsville, AL. I graduated from Hazel Green High School and then made my move to Tuscaloosa, AL to pursue a teaching degree. I graduated from The University of Alabama in 2010 with a degree in Elementary Education. I got my first job at Leeds Elementary as a kindergarten teacher and have been a part of the Leeds family ever since. I have taught kindergarten for two years, first grade for two years, and this is my sixth year as a school counselor.
      I also got married to my husband Shawn in 2011 and we have three beautiful children. We have a set of twin boys and a daughter! We also have two fur babies named Daisy and Binx!

*School Counseling Services*


       At Leeds Primary School, your child is able to receive counseling services several different ways. Counseling services are provided in a classroom setting, small group setting, and individually. I will see every classroom in the school once a week for 30 minutes for classroom guidance lessons. (Pre-K will come to me every other week for 20 minutes.) I also see small groups on a variety of topics such as divorce, friendship, anger management, social skills, and grief. I will send home consent forms at the beginning of September so you can choose a small group that your child *NEEDS*. Please refrain from signing your child up for a small group because their friend is signing up for one. Lastly, I see students individually as needed. If you would like to refer your child for individual counseling, you may simply send me an email with your concerns.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at or 205-702-2300. I hope your child has the best school year yet, and I am here to help them any way I can!
