Education & Experience:

I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from the University of NC Wilmington in May 1993.  After working in the banking business for a year, I decided to return to school to become a Special Education teacher.  I earned my teaching certification in the area of Behaviorally-Emotionally Disabled children in May 1996 and taught for 3 years in Wilmington, NC.  From there, I decided that I could use my skills to benefit lots of students, not just the eight in my class.  Graduating from East Carolina University, I earned my Masters in Counseling and completed an Internship at Jacksonville High School.  Luckily, I was selected for a position at New Bridge Middle School in 2002 and I've been here ever since.  This is a wonderful school. I enjoy working with both the staff and students everyday!



I'm Mrs. Bender, Counselor here at New Bridge Middle School.  I've been the Counselor here for six years now.  I enjoy working with the "Bears" on lots of topics such as personal, social, & emotional problems, as well as career and school decisions.

At home, I have a husband named Jeff and 2 young boys, Gus and Ethan.  I also have a basset hound named Megan. I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, and watching movies.
