Counselor’s Corner

Hello Parents! As your middle school and high school students have probably told you, I meet with each one of  them during the school year to discuss their four year educational plan along with graduation requirements.  If any parents would like to come to this meeting, just let me know and we can arrange a time that works best for you and your student. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have about your student. I am happy to meet with you.
The students at Pahranagat Valley High School and Middle School are amazing, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with them. Thank you for all that you do to support them!
