In a few years, you’ll get the opportunity to do all of things you’ve always dreamed about. You could go to college, sail the seas, launch your career, start a business or even start a family. No matter what you decide, you’ll need money smarts to make it happen.
Hello and welcome to North East Middle School. I have been the Middle School Counselor since its doors were opened in August of 1992. The growth and development of the students in grades 6, 7 & 8 is continual and it is fun and often times challenging to be around them. I truly enjoy working with the Middle School students because of their enthusiasm and high energy levels.
Some of the offerings that I include for the students are individual counseling, small support groups dealing with multiple topics such as anger management, dealing with divorce, coping with grief and loss and school survival techniques. Classroom guidance is offered for all students at each grade level with topics covering tobacco, alcohol and drug prevention and refusal skills, respect, conflict management, peer mediation and career exploration

“One thing I like about North East Middle School is that it’s a smaller school. I like the fact that I know 98% of everyone in 7th
