Washington Elementary - Washington Staff
Hello friends and welcome to my webpage!
I am very excited to be the school counselor here in Washington!
I have worked in the district as a school-based mental health counselor and have a dual masters degree in mental health and school counseling. I did my school counseling internship at Washington and Lexington with the fabulous Mrs. Mort.
My family and I live in the neighboring district of Louisville and we love to go on hikes and watch Disney movies. We also love animals and have 3 dogs, a cat, a betta fish, a turtle, and an albino hedgehog! I love to read and strive to develop a love of reading in all kids. I love Harry Potter and have many favorite books. I also love to look at and create art and strive to see the beautiful things in everyday life. I am proud of my uniqueness and artistic nature and I hope that I make people laugh everyday!
As a school counselor, I foster relationships with students by saying hello in the hallway in the morning and at dismissal, sitting with them at lunch, and doing the Word of the Month (WOM) classroom lessons. Relationship building is very important for social emotional learning (SEL) and so that students feel comfortable seeking me out to discuss concerns or to ask for help with anything that is causing a barrier to their learning. I’m here to support staff as well as Washington families. I am very proud to be part of the Marlington family. We are stronger together!!
