    School Counselor, Grades 3-5
    National Certified Counselor
     
    Welcome to my webpage!  The job of a school counselor is to assist students with their academic, career and personal-social concerns while at school.  I see students individually, in small groups and also as whole classes during classroom guidance, where I teach students about character education. 
     
    Biography
     
    I am originally from Florida and have lived in various places throughout NC.  I received my Bachelor of Arts in History with teacher certification from UNC Charlotte in 2007.  After that, I taught a year of 8th grade social studies at Mooresville Middle School in Mooresville, NC.  I received my Master of Science in Counseling from UNC Greensboro in 2012.  My interests in counseling include career and academic development as well as using creative expression techniques, such as art therapy.  In my spare time, I like to read, crochet, watch various TV shows, surf the Internet, travel, visit museums, shop and dine out.
