Hi!! I am excited to be a part of the Aspen Middle School team.  I come from New York where I worked as an Elementary School Counselor in Queens for the New York City Department of Education.  Additionally, I am an Ocean Rescuer as well as being a member of a Volunteer Fire Department.  I am looking forward to building wonderful relationships with all of the students, parents, staff, and community members.  I like to make myself as available and approachable as possible; please do not hesitate to come in to speak with me, say hi in the halls, on the street, or on the mountain.  I believe that effective collaboration makes an efficient and positive learning environment; I look forward to working with everyone.  I enjoy working with each student whollistically; building social emotional health and well-being; establishing work ethic and habits that can be effective for each person.  We will be working together towards character development; team building; social skills work, inculding conflict resolution, crisis management, and developing effective communication skills.  The goal of our counseling program is to celebrate our diffferences that makes each one of us special and unique by emphasizing the importance of empathy, respect, kindness, and communication.

Together I believe we can continue to build a wonderful learning environment where our community can flourish and students can thrive.  

Thank you for welcoming me into this incredible school community.        

Kind Regards, 

Nick :)
