Meet the Counselor
Hello, my name is Linda Prusinski, and I am the school counselor at Valley View Intermediate School. I have been a certified K - 12 counselor since 1991, and have worked here at the Intermediate School since 2002. I am a resident of Valley View School District and proud mother of two VV graduates.
I am committed to assisting our students develop socially/emotionally, to achieve academically, and to identify their personal interest and strengths so that they may explore the world of career oportunities. With that in mind, I conduct guidance classes periodically during your child's library encore rotation. Throughout the year, I will also be conducting informal small groups on specific skills. Short term individual supportive counseling is also available as needed, as well as crisis/emergency care. Please be aware that my services are not a substitute for therapy. I am always happy to provide a list of community resources to address those needs. Additionally, group and individual support services require parental/guardian permision.
As the school counselor, I am also directly involved with our Instructional Support Team and our Student Assistance Program. For more information on those, please see the corresponding tags in the navigation area on the left.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have. I may be reached via phone at 570-876-2263 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to getting to know you!
Mrs. P :)
