About Me


Hello, and welcome to my school counseling blog!  My name is Vanessa, and I have been an educator for twenty-five 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!

  1. I love your blog! I’m in teacher education and always looking for new websites to share with my students. I also teach them how to make foldables for instruction, and I love showing them examples in “real” classrooms. Thanks for the great examples. I can’t wait to see what you post next.

    • Hi, Allison. I’m so glad you found Savvy School Counselor. I already had your blog on my Pulse reader and bookmarked! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
