    What year did you come to OCT?

    I moved from Timberline Elementary to OCT in 2003 when the previous counselor here retired.

      

    What is a favorite memory related to school?
    Helping my own mother in her classroom after school.  I loved doing bulletin boards!

     

    What motivates you to do what you do as a counselor each and every day?
    There are a lot of struggles kids face in school and in life.  I am glad that I can be a person kids trust enough to go to when they want help with any of those struggles.  I love to teach guidance lessons to the whole school.  I get the opportunity to get to know every student in every grade.
