BS in Elementary Education 1-6; MA in School Counseling K-12
Hello! I first started my career with QACPS back in 2017 where I taught 6th grade Social Studies and English/Language Arts at Stevensville Middle School. In 2019 I had the honor of receiving QACPS New Teacher of the Year. As my time at Stevensville Middle School progressed I later on became the School Counselor there in 2021.
In 2022 I made the move to Kent Island High School and I couldn't be happier. Being able to be a part of my students' High School experience, as well as post-graduation goals and plans is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job.
When it comes to counseling, I use predominantly solution-focused strategies, emphasizing what is already working for a student and focusing on their strengths. My conceptualization of student concerns considers their relationships, self-concepts, and goals. I believe all students should have access to a school counselor and that a school counseling program serves all students.
