About the Teacher

:  I graduated from Bloomsburg University in 1988 with a BS in Elementary Education.  I received my Masters in Counseling at Millersville University in 1992.  I later earned my supervisory certificate in counseling at Millersville in 2001.


I started here at Donegal in 1988 as a second grade teacher at Seiler Elementary.  I started counseling at Grandview Elementary in 1992 and then later went to Maytown Elementary and Riverview Elementary as an IST teacher and a counselor.  I moved to the middle school in 2003 and now work at the Donegal Intermediate School.

Counseling Services

5 years ago

Individual Counseling

 Parents, teachers, or students can let me know if a student wishes to see me and I will be sure to contact them. 


Group Counseling

I run various groups depending on the needs of the students.  Most of these groups are voluntary and occur over their lunch period.


Classroom Lessons

Throughout the school year, I will provide classroom lessons.  We discuss careers, jealousy, empathy, handling stress, kindness, respect, peer pressure, and friendship concerns.



I always offer mediations to students as an option to handling a problem or a conflict they are experiencing in a non-violent and peaceful manner.  All students must follow the mediation rules and must listen carefully to each other without interrupting.  Mediations are almost always successful and are always encouraged in handling  conflicts so that discipline action is not necessary.
