Hello VES Students and Families!
My name is Elizabeth Greenawalt, and I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself as your student’s school counselor. I have been at VES for 16 years and love every minute spent working with staff, students, and their families. My background is in Clinical Counseling, Prevention, and Case Management, having worked at Bayshore Counseling Services prior to coming to Vermilion. My husband and I live in Huron where we raised six children who are all young adults now.
As we are all aware, the 2020-2021 back to school time differs greatly from other years. I typically visit each classroom, introducing myself and explaining how a counselor is a helper. This year, I will get that information out to students, but the method will be virtual. More to follow on that.
During the month of September, we also begin to discuss what having strong character looks like. September’s character trait is “Respect”. Students will learn about ways to show respect at home, at school, and in their community. Each month will bring a new character trait to explore through counselor lessons.
I hope to be back in your child’s classroom soon but, until then, I’m smiling at you all-behind my mask ;>)
If you would like to contact me for any reason, please call 440-204-1700 ext. 641
Here’s to a great 2020-2021 school year!
