Mrs. Meadows, M.S.Ed.
My name is Glinda Meadows and I am the 6th grade school counselor. I grew up in Arizona and attended college in western New York. I received a B.S. in Social Science and a M.S.Ed in Counseling Psychology from St. Bonaventure University. I also received my Advanced Certificate of Specialization for School Counseling in 1996. For several years I served as an adjunct professor at SBU, teaching graduate and undergraduate courses. I worked as a college counselor for 2 years and have 25 years of experience counseling students in the school setting. My favorite past time is scrapbooking and I look foward to being the advisor for Maverick Memory Makers Scrapbook Club.
Our Classroom Guidance lessons this year will focus on the transition to middle school, healthy relationships and career exploration. I will be facilitating small groups based on the needs identified through a student needs assessment. I will also meet with students on an individual basis as needed. Students may self refer or be referred by a teacher or parent.
Please take a look at the USEFUL LINKS tab for great information on how to support your child during the middle school years. My goal is to help your child have a successful middle school experience so please don't hesitate to send me an email or give me a call (704) 260-6490.
