Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I wanted to start the IB PYP at Huffman because I value student-centered instruction that also places an emphasis on social and emotional learning. The IB PYP program instills the importance of inquiry, reflection, and open-mindedness. Students are also accepting of one another and strive for success, not just academically, but also in other areas of life. 

  • My schedule is different day-to-day, but here are some of the things that I do: counseling guidance lessons in the classroom (push in), check-ins with individual students, de-escalate students that are at a very emotional state, small groups, collaboration with teachers, parent collaboration, collaboration with Shepton High School on various programs, Food Pantry, and much more!


    The following are the grade levels that I will provide counselor group instruction (guidance counseling lessons) to: Pre-K (Jones), Kinder, 2nd grade, 4th grade.


    If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me via email or phone.
