Dr. Shab Maffei, K-12 Career Counselor

Dear MSD,

I am your new K-12 Career Counselor. I work districtwide with all stakeholders to ensure our students are career ready. I am returning to you here at Methacton as a proud alumna. I attended Temple University for my Bachelor's degree in Psychology. I then continued my education at Gwynedd Mercy University for both my Master's in School Counseling and my Doctorate in Educational Leadership. I am married with 5 children who keep us active. We enjoy skiing and the beach. I also speak Farsi fluently and that's where my name "Shab" originates from.

Please join me in any of our career happenings!

Your partner,

Dr. Maffei
