Alexis and Zaondra had the pleasure of interviewing the school’s new guidance counselor. They learned a lot about her in this process. Here at Bishop McCort, we do our best to get to know everyone, as well as make them feel welcome. Here are the questions she was asked.

Q: What made you come to Bishop McCort?

A: I went to Our Mother of Sorrows and graduated from Westmont. I moved and haven’t been back for 13 years. I recently came back to the area. I wanted to be in a high school environment. I love working with students.

Q: Would you say Bishop McCort is a welcoming school?

A: Yes. Out of all the places I have worked, Bishop McCort has been the most welcoming. McCort has done the best job at making me feel welcome and at home.

Q: If you could describe Bishop McCort in three words, what would they be?

A: I would say Bishop McCort is welcoming, rigorous, and engaging.

Q: Were you a guidance counselor previously?

A: Yes, I was a guidance counselor for 5 years at an elementary school before coming here.

Q: What is your favorite part of McCort so far?

A: The students. You are all kind, smart, and engaging.

Q: What made you want to become a guidance counselor?

A: I like helping people. I also enjoy building relationships with students.

Q: Where did you go to high school at?

A: Westmont

Q: What does school counseling mean to you?

A: School counseling is about support for students, families, teachers. It is about empowerment and helping students discover their own way.

Q: What do you like about working with high school students?

A: As cute as little kids are, they are not independent. High school kids have their own personalities and interests. I enjoy getting to know you guys.

Q: Would you consider yourself to have school spirit?

A: I think so, yeah. It is fun to participate in stuff that’s not academic. It’s not always so serious.
