    Welcome Back ARJ Panthers! 


    I am looking forward to all the accomplishments and successes that you will achieve this year! 

    This is my twenty-first year as a school counselor--and I am still as excited about the process of learning.  My fundamental school counseling approach is solutions-focused: Everyone has challenges and challenges become opportunities for solutions and growth.  Key terms students hear from me are solution-building, perseverance, and resiliency.....all keys to a successful school year and successful living.

    I am thrilled to be a part of the Panther family! I am here every day to work with the students individually, in small groups, and in their classrooms.  I am also available to parents and teachers for conferences and consultation.  

    A little bit about me...

    I am a certified school counselor with a B.A. in Psychology and a Master's Degree in School Counseling .  This is my 13th year serving as a counselor. Prior to a career in school counseling, I served as a Middle Grades Language Arts teacher and a Special Education teacher.
