About Me & the Counseling Program at Snowdon

HEY SNOWDON COUGARS!
 
Mrs. Snider here, your school counselor. This is the place to find information on what a school counselor does, community resources, social & emotional learning activities, ways to contact me and more!
 
At Snowdon, we believe in the mission of the Snowdon Elementary Counseling Program to contribute, along with staff, families and community, positively and successfully to the academic, career and social & emotional development of ALL students by utilizing a comprehensive program based on data and researched best practices.

 

It is the vision of the Snowdon Elementary Counseling Program for EVERY student to develop the academic, career & social/emotional skills to be successful students and become responsible & productive citizens who are college and career ready.
 
My goal is to reach every student, every year! This is usually accomplished by teaching in the classroom, having lunches with students, doing short-term individual counseling, group counseling and having random chats in the hall! If you, as a parent, would like to have your child see me, please reach out to me via phone, email or a visit here to Snowdon. Typical discussion topics include, but aren't limited to, healthy relationships, anti-bullying & harassment, focusing in the classroom, family concerns, receiving resources (such as food, housing, outside counseling, etc), and anything else that will help your child be the best student & friend they can be.
                                                
A little about me...
 
I have been a school counselor for over 20 years, in K-12 settings. I attended EWU for my Bachelor's degree and Gonzaga for my Master's degree. I love my job; I guess that's why I've stuck around for so long. When I'm not at school, I love spending time with my family (I have a Mr. Snider and 2 daughters) and friends. My favorite thing to do is go on adventures, near or far. One of my favorite places in the world is the island of Kauai in Hawaii. I absolutely love doing anything in the outdoors- hiking, kayaking, biking, skiing. When I'm not traveling, I love to watch all kinds of sports- football, hockey, basketball, but especially soccer (Go Sounders!), and hanging out with my goats on our little farm. I am definitely not a person that sits down for long.
