I am excited and honored to be the new School Counselor here at St. Margaret Mary’s. My name is Eleni Moncrief. I am attending the graduate program for Counseling at St. Mary’s University, here in San Antonio.
As your School Counselor, I want all children to experience a positive, safe, and effective learning environment. I look forward to collaborating with you and your teachers to support the academic, personal, social and spiritual development of all students. I believe wholeheartedly that all children want to do good, and have the capacity to learn and succeed.
I will have the privilege to work with every single scholar in our school. I will be conducting classroom meetings, and work with students in small groups. Scholars can be referred to me by a teacher, administrator, parent or guardian. All students can request to meet with me, as needed. I will make time to meet with all interested parents, and discuss your specific concerns in a safe and confidential environment. I will be at the school every Wednesday and Friday. I encourage you to reach out to me, any time you have concerns regarding your child. I am a mother first, and it makes me happy to see children smile.
I welcome all suggestions and ideas to make this experience more pleasant and successful for all of us. My initial goal is to be a visible counselor and point of contact, so that you will feel comfortable to come and talk with me.
I look forward to meeting all of you throughout the year!
