I am an educator with six years of experience and this year marks my first year as a Guidance Counselor at MS 118. I began my educational journey as a paraprofessional back in 2014 when my son was just one year old. Later on, I became an attendance teacher and now I am proud to say I am a school counselor. When I was in high school, I spent a lot of my time in a middle school tutoring students and giving them “big sister” advice. I have always had a passion to talk to students and share my own story so they know there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel. I strongly believe every student should have the opportunity to be heard and express themself. I also believe that in providing students the opportunity to be heard it will open up ways to build trust and communication that will ultimately benefit the school community as a whole.
