Mrs. Sadie Sturdivant


My name is Sadie Sturdivant, and I am thrilled to be the school counselor here at Columbia Elementary School! I am originally from Montgomery, AL, and I attended college at Auburn University where I double majored in Psychology and Spanish. After college, I married my high school sweetheart, and we moved to Madison. I earned my master's degree in School Counseling at the University of North Alabama and loved my time interning in the Madison City Schools. 

I have a passion for connecting with students and helping them excel in their personal, academic, and career development. One of my goals is for every student to have a trusting relationship with at least one caring adult at the school! It is a true honor and joy to serve the students and families at CES. 

School Counseling Mission: The mission of the Columbia Elementary comprehensive counseling program is to empower all students to learn, excel, lead, grow, innovate, and compete globally by providing a safe environment, advocating for each student, offering excellent instruction, and promoting positive attitudes through academic, personal, and career development.
