7th Grade Counselor
Degrees and Certifications:
I graduated from Chadron State College with a degree in Education in 2008. My endorsement is in Health Education, grades 7-12. Prior to receiving my degree in Education, I worked as a Recrational Therapist at Regional West Medical Center. I recently also obtained my Masters Degree from Chadron State in School Counseling. I decided to obtain my degree in education because I love working with kids, particularly adolescents. The middle school years are an exciting and challenging time of life. Students are changing in every way possible-physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. As a school counselor, I want to provide support for students and their families as they experience these changes and help them be as successful as possible in school.
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!! What a difference a year can make. This time last year, this class was anticipating all of the new changes of middle school, and now they are "expert middle school students"! I am impressed with the growth these students made through their 6th grade year and look forward to working with them again in 7th grade. Please call or e-mail me with any questions or concerns and we will see you soon!
