Welcome to the Counseling Center!

  • Mrs. Downey

    Welcome to the 2020/2021 school year! My name is Callie Downey and I am the school counselor at Eagle Heights Elementary. I've had the pleasure of working as a middle school counselor for two years and this will be my third year in the Smithville School District as a counselor. I have been married to my husband for the last 21 years and we are raising four of our own Warriors in Smithville. I received my bachelor's degree from Northwest Missouri State University and my Masters in Counseling from MidAmerica Nazarene University.

    I am extremely passionate about school counseling and believe that every child has the ability to flourish when given the proper resources and support. Children come to school with unique experiences and perspectives. I believe that every child deserves a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere that allows them to grow emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially.

    I believe that in order for a student to be a successful learner at school, their social and emotional needs must be met. Although excelling academically is extremely important, learning how to be a strong, independent and respectful individual is equally valuable.

    My counseling practices are based on the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Model and I focus on developing a program that removes barriers to learning. Some of the services I will provide to your child include: 

    • Core Curriculum Classroom Lessons
    • Small Groups
    • Individual Support
    • Parent Support


    I know this is going to be a great year! Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns. My email is downeyc@smithville.k12.mo.us and my phone number is 816-532-5959.
