Counselor's Corner

Dear Wendler Ram Families,

My name is Mrs. Rowe and I am the 8th grade counselor this year. For the year 2016-17 I will e the 7th grade counselors. We stay with our students and this causes us to change grade levels each year.

I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska and really enjoy the countless recreational opportunities that our great state offers. My life in education began with teaching Elementary Physical Education on Elmendorf AFB for 14 years. During this time I finished my Masters of Education with an emphasis in School Counseling & Guidance. I have been a counselor at Wendler for 15 years. I also enjoy sports and have found great joy in interacting with your students while coaching .

Parenting can be challenging and rewarding. As I was raising my children I frequented the Loussac Library Parenting section often. I am happy to share ideas with any of you that are seeking different ways to manage time, electronics, homework and division of labor in your home. I enjoy partnering with families in this way. :)

I am happy to serve our most wonderful Wendler students and families!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Rowe

Counseling Department Chair

Hello Wendler Families!

I am Mrs. Moss and I am the 7th grade counselor this year. I am originally from Lilburn, Georgia and came to Alaska as a ski bum and decided to stay! I have lived in Girdwood now for 5 years and love this beautiful state.

I am a brand new school counselor this year and completed my Practicum at Begich Middle School and Internship at Dimond High School. I love the middle school age group because they're not quite kids anymore and they're not full-blown teenagers yet either; it's a unique time of their lives. I feel like they are still quite impressionable and when they are struggling academically, socially, or emotionally, I'm here to help!

When I'm not at school, I love hanging out with my baby girl and husband, hiking, fishing, snowboarding, baking, gardening, and listening to music.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or for check-ins. I am always happy to help! My hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 7:45am - 3:00pm.

Sincerely,

Christine Moss
