Mrs. Tina Bentley

Welcome to my page...I'm so glad you stopped by!

My name is Tina Bentley and I am originally from Sparta, in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.  I completed a BA degree from Appalachian State in Psychology with a concentration in Child Development and attended  Lenoir-Rhyne University (College... way back then) to complete a Master's degree in Counseling with an additional certification in School Counseling.  While attending graduate school at LR I earned two higher-level certifications, National Board Certified Counselor (NBCC) and my Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).  I have been in the counseling profession for 26 years.  I spent 10 years as a K-8th School Counselor in Caldwell County and worked part-time as a private therapist for 2 years.  Sixteen years ago, I was lucky enough to transfer to Bethlehem Elementary and have loved it here ever since.  I live in the Bethlehem community with my husband, Joel, and our two children, Gavin and Madeleine... plus a crazy beagle named Zeebo and a white lab named Luna.  I enjoy spending time with my family, going camping, being outside, vacationing at the beach, and Amazon Prime!  

 Please feel free to contact me at Bethlehem Elementary School (828) 495-8198 or  I hope you stop by again soon to check out new information that I hope you find helpful for your child/children.
