Hello and welcome to a new school year!  These past several months have surely tested our resilience, frustration levels and have proven the importance of human connection and kindness.  I look forward to reconnecting with the Smith School family and building upon the social and emotional wellness of our students, families and staff! 

A little about me and my role as school counselor:  I am beginning my 9th year as the school counselor at Smith.  I truly love working with the K-5 students -- I enjoy visiting their classrooms for guidance lessons, running small groups, meeting individually with students and generally interacting with them and their amazing teachers throughout the day!  I am also happy to speak with parents at any time to discuss concerns or questions regarding their child. In addition to my role as school counselor, I am the Anti-Bullying Specialist, 504 Case Manager, Intervention & Referral Service (I&RS) Team Leader, RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) Club facilitator and I head the School Culture and Climate Team for Smith School.  I look forward to continuing my work with the Smith School community during this very unique school year!
