Counselor's Corner

Female guidance counselor

Susan Kirk

Dear Parents and Students:

Welcome to a new school year! I hope that all of you had a great summer. As we begin a new year, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and be sure that all of you know a little bit about me and what I do as a counselor.

My name is Susan Kirk and I am a 1988 graduate of Escambia County High School. (Go Big Blue!) I am entering my 28th year as an educator and my 20th year as a counselor. I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with your students here at ECHS. I would like to encourage each of you to call, email, or come see me if there is anything I can do for you!

I serve as the counselor to all ECHS students, grades 9 – 12. My primary responsibility is to work with students on academic, career, and college planning. I am available throughout the school day to talk with students, parents, and teachers.

My door is always open to you; I will also be doing small group and classroom guidance lessons throughout the year. I want you to know that I am here if any need arises. Please do not hesitate to contact me. My contact information is provided below:

Phone: 251-368-9181, Ext. 2106


I look forward to working with all of our students this year!


Susan Kirk
