Room #: School Counseling Office
I am the School Counselor for students whose last names begin with L-Z. This is my 15th year as a School Counselor. I hold K-12 School Counseling certification in Pennsylvania. I have a Master of Science Degree in Counseling and Human Relations from Villanova University and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Indiana University of PA. I am a graduate of Hempfield Area Senior High School, which is out in the suburbs of Pittsburgh.
My job as a School Counselor involves providing assistance to students in three primary areas: (1) academic performance/course advisement, (2) career exploration and (3) personal/social counseling. In 7th grade, I will meet with your child at least once to see how they are adjusting to the challenges of middle school. Later in the spring semester, your child will participate in the PSSA and I will help to prepare them for 8th grade.
In 8th grade, I will work with your child on some exploratory career planning through a program called Career Cruising. 8th graders will also participate in the PSSA in the spring and then schedule for 9th grade.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!
