    COVID-19 Update

    During our school closure, I will be available via email Monday-Friday from the hours of 8-3. I will also check my voicemail throughout the week. Located at the top left of my webpage, there is a COVID-19 tab. Here, you will find resources for parents, guardians, and students. Please review these resources. The student packets consist of reinforcing coping skills, stress management techniques, and mindfulness activities. Completion of packets are optional. 


    Welcome! I am the School Counselor @ McKinley Avenue Elementary School. I look forward to working closely with all students in the areas of personal, social, and academic development. I have several goals as the School Counselor: to engage students in activities that promote positive interpersonal knowledge, attitudes, and skills, to help students make healthy decisions, set reasonable personal goals, cope with difficult and stressful situations, and to assist students in overcoming barriers that may prevent them from achieving the academic success that we ALWAYS strive for at McKinley. I hope to help all students build bright futures! I look forward to an AWESOME 2019-2020 school year.


    Services Offered: Individual Counseling, Group Counseling, Classroom Lessons, & More!


    Throughout the school year, I will create quarterly Counselor Newsletters highlighting Upstander Students, important events that took place during those months, resources and more! The quarterly newsletters will be available via Twitter or by clicking on the links that will be posted below. (Newsletter Months: November, January, March & May)
