Welcome to the Albany School District School Counseling webpage! This is my sixth year in the school district and I am excited for the direction our school district is headed. I firmly believe in the development of the whole student, which brings focus to academics, social and emotional skills, career development possibilities, mental health, and opportunities for experiential learning in our communities. My School Counseling Program goals include supporting students through large group, small group, and individual support and instruction on the topics listed above.

The School Counseling Department is continually under development to ensure students, staff, parents, and community members are connected, being provided with up to date resources, and that students are receiving the support that will help them be successful at school and in life! Some exciting things and programs I am working to build include: Academic and Career Planning for grades 6-12, Youth Apprenticeship for juniors and seniors, college and career opportunities in and outside of school, test-prep materials and resources, dual enrollment options for high school students, mental health support, youth mentor possibilities, and the list goes on!

My training and education background includes a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse. I received my Master of Science in Education with the Emphasis of School Counseling from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. I started my career at Clinton High School and then was able to come back home and become the school counselor in the district from which I graduated.

This is my first year in the district and I am so excited to be part of the Comet family. I strongly believe all students can achieve academic, career, and social-emotional success when given appropriate support and interventions. This year I will be using the Second Step program for guidance lessons. Second Step is a research-based social-emotional learning curriculum that nurtures children's social-emotional competence. I am so excited to be using this curriculum as it focuses on the whole child and building supportive communities. Some topics we will be covering this year are:

  • Identifying Feelings

  • Making Friends

  • Emotion Management

  • Problem Solving
