I've been working with the North Bergen District for many years. I was a 4th grade teacher for two years. I then spent two years as a high school guidance counselor and now I have been the guidance counselor at J. F Kennedy Elementary School for five years now. I decided to further my education and I received my Supervisor's Certificate in 2012.

I am the Anti-Bullying Specialist and my main goal is to promote and build a positive school climate. I handle with the I&RS/504 Committee to help assist students who are academically struggling.
It is my pleasure to steer students in the right direction, and to comfort them along the way.
What is a school counseling program?

A school counseling program reaches every student, regardless of affiliation, and strives to focus on the knowledge and attitude needed for successful academic achievement and personal/social growth. A school counselor serves as an advocate for all the students in their respective schools.
