    Hello Ball’s Bluff Elementary School families,

    I am excited to start another year at Ball's Bluff and happy to have a part time counselor, Mrs. Kron with me 3 days a week. This is my 21st year as an elementary school counselor for Loudoun County. I am a product of LCPS starting at Emerick Elementary, continuing to Blue Ridge Middle, and graduating from Loudoun Valley High School. After completing my Bachelor’s from Hollins University and Master’s degree from Marymount, I began my career in 1999 at Rolling Ridge Elementary School in Sterling, Virginia. It was there where I met and worked for Dr. Carper. Since then, I have had a wonderful experience being at many different schools and learning a great deal from the people and families I have worked with. 

    I live in Lucketts with my husband, daughter Dylan who is a junior, and son Miles who is in 6th grade. I love being outside, gardening, photography, and spending time with family and friends.

    My job is to foster resiliency, provide tools for personal/social skills, help build relationships and confidence, advocate for students, and teach empathy with character education. I will be doing this through bi-weekly guidance lessons in your child’s class, optional group counseling sessions, and individual counseling. I am very communicative and will update my website monthly, as well as, call home when necessary or with any concerns. Please feel free to call, email, or set up a meeting with me should you have any issues to discuss. This year, I will be dividing the school with Mrs. Kron on guidance lessons and groups. I will be responsible for 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade, and Mrs. Kron will be Kindergarten and 3rd grade. 

     

    Please check my website monthly and do not hesitate to call me with any questions or other information you would like to discuss.

    I look forward to a fantastic year!
