Hello, my name is Kim Walls and I am the guidance counselor at Ladson Elementary. This is my 19th year as a guidance counselor and my 9th year as the school counselor at Ladson Elementary. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Charleston Southern University and an Masters in Education in School Counseling from The Citadel.

I grew up in the small town of New Ellenton, SC and graduated from Aiken High School. I have spent all of my adult years here in the beautiful Low Country. I am proud to be from Charleston and enjoy all it offers. I have worked in several schools in Charleston County, including two middle schools.

Please call or email me with any questions or concerns you may have about your child.
