Hello, my name is Judith Palmeri, and I am the full time school counselor at Academy. The kids call me Ms. Palmeri, or simply Ms. P.!
I have worked for WSESU for over twenty five years and have had the good fortune to work at the high school, middle school, and elementary level. Every day I get up excited to go to work, and have always felt that my work is both a great challenge and an honor.
I earned my Master's Degree in Educational Counseling and Consultation at Keene State College, and continue to take graduate courses and attend workshops and conferences to learn more about issues facing all of our students.
My work with students takes place individually and in small groups, and I teach in the classroom as well. I am particularly interested in teaching social skills, and helping students learn how to treat others with respect, and promote peaceful conflict resolution.
Sponsoring the Academy 6th Grade Leadership Team is a special joy, and every year we learn something new, as a team, about how we can create a respectful, inclusive, and positive learning environment at Academy School.
I am always available to consult with parents, and really enjoy hearing from parents and guardians. I love Academy School!
