Meet the Counselors
Hello! I am Mrs. Cali and I am excited to be one of your school counselors this year at Hillside Elementary School! This is my fourth year at Hillside Elementary. Before Hillside, I spent 9 years in middle school and am excited about the transition to elementary school. I received my undergraduate degree from Old Dominion University and my master's degree in School Counseling from Liberty University.
I live in Brambleton with my husband and an amazing seven-year-old daughter. During my free time, I spend time with my family; doing arts and crafts with my daughter, building LEGO, and going to Disney!
I am excited about working with our Hawks. If you need to contact me, I can be reached at Summer.Cali@lcps.org and 571-252-2170. If you would like to make an appointment, please reach out ahead of time so I can be sure to set time aside for you.
Ms. Wiernik is excited to join the Hillside Elementary School family and work with this year’s third, fourth and fifth graders! This is Ms. Wiernik’s third year as a school counselor and her first year at Hillside.
After a career in broadcast news in New York, covering stories about education programs and policies, Ms. Wiernik decided to devote her talents to working with students in schools and helping put those programs into action. Ms. Wiernik began this second career in Connecticut working with Special Education students.
Ms. Wiernik is most excited about helping students discover opportunities to make themselves proud and to think creatively about their own unique futures. Dream big, Hawks!
When she’s not reading about ways to support student success, Ms. Wiernik relishes crossword puzzles and solving the mystery before she gets to the end of the book. And as often as she can, she travels!
Ms. Wiernik has an undergraduate degree in Political Science and a Master of Education with a concentration in School Counseling.
