Mrs. Keisha Uhle
Hello! My name is Keisha Uhle and I am Aiken Elementary's School Counselor. I have a Master's degree in School Counseling from the University of South Carolina and a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education from Clemson University. This year will be my 14th year as School Counselor at Aiken Elementary. Prior to working as a Counselor, I taught Kindergarten, first and third grades.
I am a native of Aiken and attended Aiken Elementary as a child. I have been married to my husband, Mike, for 28 years and we have three children; Ryan, 25, Natalie, 23 and Jared, 20. Jared is a Junior at Clemson University (Go Tigers!), Natalie is a second year graduate student at MUSC and Ryan is a recent USC law school graduate.
I love my job as School Counselor and I am here to support students through individual counseling, classroom guidance and small group counseling. I also serve as a support to parents who may have academic, social or emotional concerns regarding their children. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 641-2741.
