Hello, and welcome to my school counseling blog! My name is Vanessa, and I have been an educator for twenty-four years. I taught second grade for thirteen years and then became a school counselor at a new elementary school where I have now worked since 2004. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education and a Master of Education Degree in Counseling. I am also a 2009 National Board Certified Teacher in the area of School Counseling.
I have one beautiful daughter and one rambunctious Miniature Schnauzer who both keep me on my toes. I absolutely love all things Disney and spend most (if not all) of my planned vacations at Walt Disney World or on a Disney Cruise. I am an active member of my church where I am a praise and worship leader and member of the choir.
I look forward to sharing with, as well as learning from, all of you!
