Western Elementary School Counselor

I have been working for STSD since 2012. I love being a school counselor because I get to work with every student in the building in a variety of settings–small group, classroom lessons, assemblies, and individual.

Harry S Truman School Counselor

I have been with STSD since 2011, and I absolutely love my job.  I get to know all of the students in our building by providing lessons in each classroom and helping kids in small groups or individually when they need that extra support.  Seeing how they change and grow from kindergarten to 5th grade has been a very rewarding experience for me.

Mrs. Joy Wernick,

Salisbury High School Counselor

This is my second year working for the district and my first year working at SHS. I love being a school counselor because I get to be an advocate for my students. I believe strongly in the importance of students having someone at school who will listen and support them and I’m happy to play that role.

Mr. Michael Dorward,

Salisbury Middle School Counselor 

Over the past 15+ years in the Salisbury Township School School District, I have had the distinct pleasure of watching our students grow and change in a supportive academic environment. As a School Counselor, I am afforded the unique and rewarding opportunity to play an integral role during this critical period in a child’s life.

Thank a school counselor today!
