About Me


Thank you so much for visiting Entirely Elementary...School Counseling!

This is my 16th year as an urban elementary school counselor. I am also certified to teach elementary students and special education students.


The Blog Was Born!

 A few years ago at the PSCA conference, I had the opportunity to see many wonderful presenters, but two in particular resonated with me! Danielle Schultz of School Counselor Blog presented a workshop on all kinds of really fun tech stuff and Dr. Russell Sabella of SchoolCounselor.com presented on even more tech stuff and data collection. I left those two presentations feeling rejuvenated and pretty excited about trying some of their tried and true ideas!


At the time I was feeling that while sharing my ideas with my colleagues and folks in my area was a fun thing to do, I was greatly missing the act of reciprocation. I was craving new ideas just as much as I wanted to share mine. So, I started looking for a way to share MY tried and true ideas with fellow school counselors. I also began thinking about how to connect with educators outside of my immediate region. Looking for a new challenge, I decided that a blog might be the avenue I was searching for. The blog was created!

The Blog Posts

I am always thinking about new ideas to use with my students. Ideas that will grab their attention, get them engaged, have an impact, and help them to be successful in school and in life. What you will see on the blog, is an extension of how I run my school counseling office - fun, welcoming, colorful -- with high expectations, organization, drive, and genuine care.
