As your school counselor, I am here to assist students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development. It is my goal to ensure that our students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.
My specific goal is that all of our students graduate as a career-ready citizen, whether they pursue a career that requires college, apprenticeship, trade-specific education or on-the-job training.
