“When given the choice between being right or being kind choose kind.”
Welcome to my website! This is my seventh year as a school counselor at Hop Brook and my fourth year in the role as lead teacher. I absolutely love working in Naugatuck School and as a school counselor have had the ability to foster lifelong relationships with families and students that have had such an immeasurable impact on my life! For as long as I can remember, my goal was to become an school counselor and make a difference in the lives of children, and I truly feel lucky each and every day to be able to live out my dream!
Hop Brook School is such a special and unique community. We promote a growth mindset, incorporate daily mindfulness practices, and encourage students to take risks and set measurable goals that we celebrate. In close collaboration with families, we work together to instill a love of learning, thereby encouraging students to become lifelong learners and contributing members of society. Our students love coming to school and our teachers and staff love coming to work!
If I can help support you or your child in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me.
