The goal of the Weimar High School Counselor is to prepare all students socially, academically, and emotionally for present and future challenges. Students have the opportunity to participate in educational and career exploration, and to pursue career planning opportunities in a safe, nurturing, and encouraging environment. As the counselor, I will work in a collaborative partnership with students, parents, teachers, and community members to empower students to reach their highest potential.
My door is always open.
