Hello! Welcome to Macungie Elementary School! My name is Mrs. Smith, and I am happy to be the school counselor at Macungie. I love having the opportunity to help children and their families.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I graduated from East Stroudsburg University, and then earned a MEd. at Lehigh University. I taught full-time for 7 years and part-time for several more years before becoming a counselor. I have been an elementary counselor for a total of 21 years, 2 in the Bethlehem Area District and 19 in East Penn. I am also a member of the CLIU 21 Flight Team, which responds to local schools in times of crisis.
When I'm not in school, I have many other interests. I have 3 grown children and 2 very special grandchildren who are a huge joy in my life!! I love to sing and dance and shop!. I keep moving with exercise, e.g. walking, jogging, weight-lifting, and biking. I also enjoy the mental exercises of crossword puzzles, reading, sudoku and some computer games. I find camping and nature very relaxing, and many of our vacations have consisted of camping in the midst of beautiful and peaceful sights.
It's going to be another exciting year! I look forward to working with our Macungie students, families and teachers! Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.
