Hello Clark Middle School!  I am so excited to be serving as one of your school counselors this year. I'm in my 12th year in the education and counseling worlds and I absolutely love it. I'm thrilled to be getting back to middle school, where I began my career teaching 6th and 7th grade math! This makes my 7th year as a school counselor and I have no doubt it will be the best year yet! 

Proud to be a Panther!
