About Me

Cartoon of a lady leaning over and waving

Hello Dragons! I am one of the school counselors here at Odell Elementary. I primarily work with students whose last names begin with the letters "M-Z", however,  I am also available to provide support for other students as needed.  My role as a school counselor is to help students be successful in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social and career development.  I work with students in various ways within the school setting to help them achieve that success.  I look forward to a great school year.
