I understand my primary role within the community as guiding our students toward a college that is a good fit; therefore, I strive to maintain an atmosphere free from prejudice, favoritism, or predisposition in regards to what colleges students are investigating. While faculty and counselors will offer insight, suggestions and, perhaps, some personal opinions gleaned from their time in college, my main goal is to help students find a place where they will find both success and happiness after leaving the Spain Park High School community.
