Check back often as I am currently in the process of updating the counselor pages! 



My name is Teresa Elam and I am the new school counselor at RHS for the 2019-2020 school year!  I have been in education for more than six years and am excited to be here working with the students and parents of Ripley High. If you have questions or need assistance please call or schedule an appointment! I will be happy to help in any way that I can. The Counselor’s Office is located just down the hall from the high school office. My office hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. through the school year.  Please stop by my little corner of the school and introduce yourself as soon as you can.


Our counseling department offers so much – academic counseling, career counseling, plus, help with the day to day problems of life. I am here to help in any way I can.
