Welcome to Hickory Elementary School’s Counseling Program website.Hickory Elementary nurtures an environment where students not only learn the academic skills needed to succeed but also the life skills needed to become a successful adult. The counseling program offers that outlet for students to learn about themselves and others through classroom guidance lessons, school-wide character education programs, group counseling, and individual counseling.
All of the Avon Elementary counseling programs have the philosophy that the whole child matters, and we create an environment that guides the child to find his or her potential. We work collaboratively with teachers and parents, which, in turn, positively affects the students. We get to know the students and recognize the strengths in each one of them.
I am so pleased to be able to work with your child! This is the eighth year that I have had the privilege to work with the students at Hickory. This is my seventh year as the school counselor. Before coming to Hickory, I was an ENL instructor in Washington Township in Indianapolis and a counselor and German teacher in IPS. I graduated from Ball State University and IUPUI. My husband and I are now empty-nesters. Both our daughter and son live in different states.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns!
