Assigned grades: Kinder, First and Second Scholars

This will be my fifth year working with WLE scholars.

I will provide bi-weekly SEL (Social & Emotional Learning) lessons to them.

In September, lunch groups will kick-off for scholars that need additional guidance (parent or teacher recommended). 

Our lunch group sessions will address topics, such as, self-esteem, responsibility, divorce, separations, military-life (deployments) or being new to WLE.

I am hoping to make an impact by positively changing the way individuals think about themselves and their future.

I am here for all our scholars, staff, and their families! 

I will respond within 24 to 48 hours, either by phone or by email.


Who are school counselors?

“School counselors work to maximize student success, promoting access and equity for all students.  As vital members of the school leadership team, school counselors create a school culture of success for all.”  (ASCA)

How will I do this for your student?

  1. Advocate, advocate, advocate! 

  2. Help your student learn to manage their emotions using skills they have and ones they will learn. 

  3. Provide Guidance Lessons for all students on topics relevant to Williams Ledger Cougar Cub students. 

  4. Identify student challenges and needs and address them. 

  5. Collaborate with families, teachers, administrators, and community to provide the most useful tools necessary for student growth and achievement. 

  6. Other: individual and group counseling; participate in campus initiatives that honor students, family and community; work closely with staff to understand the needs of students; offer after-school clubs that focus on building useful and positive character. 

Clubs Offered Through the Counseling Department


S2S participate in multiple opportunities throughout the school year to strengthen and celebrate our amazing students. Service projects, leadership development, and strong work ethic are just a few of the topics discussed. 

S2S Clubs

This group of 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders work hard daily in the cafeteria during the morning rush. They assist the ‘littles’ with opening breakfast items, escorting ‘littles’ to their classroom, providing tours for new students and building those powerful relationships among peers.
