I would like to welcome back those of you from last year, and also welcome any new families to the district! This is my second year as the Student Assistance Counselor for North Haledon School District. I look forward to helping each student meet their personal goals, maximize their full potential for academic achievement, identify and understand their feelings and provide one-on-one support as often as needed. I welcome you to contact me with any of your concerns or questions throughout the year. I look forward to another great school year!
The mission of the North Haledon School Counseling Program is to provide a comprehensive school counseling developmental program to promote lifelong learning and enhance student success. School counselors are advocates for students, allies with teachers, and liaisons with parents; the purpose of the school counseling program is to provide all students with the skills that optimize their academic, career, and personal/social development needed to become responsible citizens in a global society. In doing so, the North Haledon School Counseling Program recognizes the uniqueness and personal worth of each student, strives to provide equity of access to a supportive safe learning environment for every student. We value the importance of programming that promotes education, prevention, and intervention with a focus on student success outcomes.
