I am excited to serve this school year as the School Counselor at York One Academy. My greatest joy is encouraging and supporting success in students. In my role, I will strive to help all students by providing a comprehensive program that meets their academic, personal/ social, and career development needs.
I strongly believe that every student has the ability to learn and grow in a safe, positive, and supportive environment where expectations are taught, modeled, and expected. I believe that every student deserves to be noticed (seen and heard), recognized, and celebrated. When students feel safe, share respect, build trusting relationships, and are recognized for their individual gifts, strengths, and unique abilities, they will reach their optimal learning capacities and potential.
I look forward to working with our students to equip them with the tools to be successful in transitions back to their home schools.
