    An adjustment counselor collaborates with teachers, administrators, and parents to teach the whole child and help ensure all students have a positive learning experience! I have been working with students in grades K-12 for 18 years and this is my fifth year at Chandler. Here, students will see me in the classrooms, the specials, the lunchroom, at recess and of course in my small classroom by the upper library. To the new families, and the families I have not yet met...please do not hesitate to introduce yourselves to me as I value communication greatly! I absolutely love my job, and am willing to hear any questions, concerns in hopes of making learning and growing a great experience for your children. 
    The list of books below is a great starting point for some common elementary school topics. But there are so many other resources, so please do not hesitate to ask!
