Who is Middle Paxton's School Counselor?
MISS KATE WOFFINDIN
My goal, as Middle Paxton's School Counselor, is to help ALL students develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes, beliefs, and habits that will enable them to benefit maximally from their instructional opportunities and experiences.
I have been an elementary school counselor since 2009. After attending The College of William and Mary, where I also played volleyball (Yes, I am very tall!), I earned my Masters degree and certificate in Elementary School Counseling from Villanova University.
I am really looking forward to working with all of the students, families, and staff here at Middle Paxton!
I am at Middle Paxton on Cycle Days 1, 4, and 5 but please feel free to contact me at any time:
