I love and adore my job! I have been an Elementary School Counselor for nine years. Prior to school counseling, I worked for the State of Utah in Youth Corrections and was an English Conversation Teacher in Seoul, Korea.
I love to create fun and engaging lessons for my students. I incorporate a lot of games and activities for my class lessons, and counseling sessions. I have found Solution Focused Brief Counseling to be effective in helping students achieve school success.

I have been married to my Scientist husband for 25 years. He is also a Big 12 Football official. So, when we're not at work, we travel to many football games on the weekends. We have two teenage kids that keep us busy! No day is complete without an ice cold 64 oz. Diet Coke! Please visit me at my blog at: The School Counselor Is In
