Mrs. Debbie Hunter

Hello, my name is Debbie Hunter and I have been a school counselor at Brinson Memorial Elementary for nearly 22 years. Before coming to Brinson, I was a counselor at Craven Community College. After a break to a stay at home mom with my 3 children, I returned to my career calling working with kids! I've lived in New Bern for 37 years with my husband, Randy. I graduated from Wake Forest University with a Master of Arts in Education with an emphasis in school counseling. I am truly blessed to be a part of this wonderful school!

    • Advisor for KC Club (Kindess and Compassion) - do activities in the school and surrounding community to promote kindness
    • Work with PBIS and MTSS to insure positive behaviors and academic success for all students.
