Shelli Bond, M.S., L.P.S.C., NCC
Hello! My name is Shelli Bond
This is my first year as the School Counselor at Altruria Elementary School! I am very proud and excited to join this wonderful school in educating and preparing the next generation of productive and healthy citizens.
I graduated from Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and I obtained my Masters of Science in Counseling from The University of Memphis. I am also a National Certified Counselor with the National Board for Certified Counselors and licensed as a Professional School Counselor as well.
I have been a counselor for 13 years and have served in various clinical, school and leadership positions throughout my career. I am a former Professional School Counselor with Shelby County Schools, with my most recent position at Kate Bond Elementary. I have also worked for Youth Villages, Child Protective Services, and served as a Foster Care Counselor as well.
I am originally from Ohio but I consider Memphis to be my home. Although, I am an Ohio State BUCKEYE, born and bred and absolutely LOVE football season!! The Buckeyes and Dallas Cowboys are my teams! I live in Bartlett and have 3 children and 2 Shih-Tzu’s (Coco Chanel & Cami). We are adding a new little puppy to our family in September and naming him Cowboy.
I am very excited to be a part of the Altruria Family and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!

Hi, my name is Mrs. Wells and I am excited to be working at Altruria Elementary this school year! This is my first year as a school counselor and I am very thankful to be working in Bartlett City Schools. I am lucky enough to serve two schools. I spend half my time at Altruria, and the other half at Bon Lin Elementary.
I completed my undergraduate degree at Middle Tennessee State University in Elementary Education (k-6) and recently completed my graduate degree in School Counseling from the University of Memphis. At the time of commencement, I also earned a graduate certificate in College and Career Counseling.
I am a native Memphian and I am very excited about beginning this new chapter of my life at Altruria and Bon Lin!
