Meet the Counselors

  • School counselors promote and enhance achievement with an annual comprehensive school counseling plan that ensures that every student receives school counseling services. Credentialed school counselors provide comprehensive counseling programs that incorporate prevention and intervention with continuous academic, career, and personal/development activities that will prepare them for meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world. These activities include classroom guidance, small groups for skill mastery, individual counseling for students with specific needs, and a variety of other proactive and innovative ways to support student performance. 

    School counselors implement a program based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model. They also provide resources to staff, students, families, and others to ensure that a family-friendly environment is established and ensure that students have access to a safe school climate necessary for academic and social/emotional growth.

    Parents are always welcome to come in or call 754-322-3200 for assistance or advice.

Meet the Wildcat Counseling Family

  • Greetings William Dandy Family,

    Middle school students are unique, but we are here to help guide you.  We promise you will survive these years.  Our purpose is to help students academically, behaviorally, and socially as they navigate the transition from elementary to middle to high school.  Students will begin to see the “bigger picture,” as we prepare them for high school and beyond.  Middle school is the time to set goals, develop good study habits, time management skills, and plan for higher education- whether that involves community college, vocational programs, or a traditional college.   We look forward to working with all our parents throughout the years your child spends at William Dandy Middle School.
