I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to meet or speak with parents and students and help throughout the application process. If you have questions about how to apply, the requirements, or the status of your application, I will be happy to assist you. If needed, I can also guide you to the most appropriate resource for additional help or support.
My role is to provide additional support to students and families. I can help navigate the platform, give suggestions on how to improve grades, or provide assistance if you do not understand an assignment. This year I am excited to be going around to various places to meet with students and offer assistance if needed. If you feel you would like additional support or would like to meet with me for any reason, even if it’s just to talk, please call to set up a time and place that is convenient.
As a special education teacher, I am able to support the unique needs of students with individual education programs. I am available to address educational concerns, provide assistance on assignments, advocate for student accommodations and facilitate communication. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
As your school counselor, I can help you be successful at Wauwatosa Virtual Academy and beyond. Whether you need help scheduling classes, want to plan for college and a career, or have any social/emotional concerns, I am here to support you. In addition to Wauwatosa Virtual Academy, I am also a School Counselor at Vel R. Phillips School and Wauwatosa Montessori School.
