New Counselor at ASE (See Photo Below)


Hello!

My name is Brooke Hostetler and I feel privileged to introduce myself as the new counselor at the Academy. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself both professionally and personally.

I have 17 years of experience as a high school counselor. I’ve spent that time working in a large school setting with hundreds of students in my caseload alongside a team of counselors. The Academy will be very different than what I’m used to, and I’m excited to be a part of this close-knit and unique environment.

I’ve lived in Monroe County my entire life. I began school at Unionville Elementary and eventually graduated from Edgewood High School. I stayed in Bloomington for college and went on to earn my bachelor’s and master’s degrees at IU. I have been married to my husband, Steve, for almost 18 years and we have 3 kids, Chase, Grey, and Brynn. We also have 2 dogs, Spencer and Wilson, and two Guinea pigs, Rosie and Butterscotch. My favorite TV show of all time is The Office, but you are much more likely catching me reading than watching TV. I can’t tell you my favorite book, because I love so many, but I am currently reading a fantasy series by Sabaa Tahir that is excellent! nu9

I will finish by saying that I think teenagers are awesome; they’re funny, creative, and inspiring. That said, I am so excited to get to know everyone!! I know beginning the school year online will be very different, but I promise to work hard to get to know you and help you reach your goals despite the challenges of virtual learning.

Please feel free to call me or email me with questions or just to introduce yourself. Here's to an excellent 20-21 school year!

SEL Corner!

Welcome to the SEL Corner!

We believe that students deserve a safe and inspiring school culture and future where there is empathy, respect for one another, and opportunities for all students to grow academically, behaviorally, social, and emotionally. Through the MCCSC’s Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Initiative, our students and teachers will learn and practice social and emotional skills through the use of the Second Step or School-Connect curriculum. Some examples of these skills are: self-awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Discussions that focus on creating a supportive learning community, developing self-awareness and self-management, building relationships and resolving conflicts, and preparing for college and the workforce are happening throughout the school year. We see application of these skills across home and school and encourage you to talk with your adolescent about what they are learning with Second Step or School-Connect.
