Welcome back Halstead community!!

I am so elated to be continuing my professional journey here at Halstead Academy of Art & Science as the new school counselor. This new 2014-2015 school year promises to bring many extraordinary changes to Halstead, including our school counseling program!

As a Lighthouse School, Halstead teachers & staff will pave the way for BCPS' instructional digital conversion; the S.T.A.T initiative. Another exciting venture is Halstead's pairing with Towson University! Last but not least, there will be some awesome additions made to the school counseling program here at Halstead that will take place during the year.

The Role of a School Counselor

What exactly does a school counselor do?

Have you often wondered what a school counselor actually does?? If so, you were not alone. Throughout this new 2014-2015 school year, my hope is to shed some light on this often inquired question. For now, please read an abbreviated description of my role here at Halstead Academy.

As the school counselor of Halstead Academy, my role is to work in conjunction with our school administrative team, staff members, families, & community stakeholders to address the current needs of our students through the use of collected data. As the new school counselor, I will provide both direct & indirect services to Halstead’s students & families, as well as to our amazing faculty & staff members.

During this school year I will work to address the personal, social/emotional, academic & career goals of our awesome students. I look forward to sharing additional information about my role in the building & the services provided.
