Hello UNIS Hanoi Middle School!
I am delighted to have begun my time covering for cover for Ms. Paula Wilcox for the second half of the academic year as a middle school counsellor. Returning to my educational roots in middle school is most exciting, and with the welcoming help from Mr. Kirk Jackson, and the entire Middle School team, I look forward to being a part of the UNIS Hanoi school community.
I have most recently come from the International School of Dakar, where I covered a HS counselling maternity leave. Prior to that I worked at the International School of Kuala Lumpur as a teacher and a high school counsellor. I have lived and worked in various parts of Asia for over the past 25 years, so it is great to be ‘home’ again.
As a counsellor, I love that every day is different; no matter what I have on my agenda, it can all change based on the energy, interaction and needs of students. I enjoy the insights into people and reality that happens in counselling when working with students, their families and teachers. Through guidance lessons, roaming the corridors and drop in meetings, I look forward to meeting Middle School students and parents. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
