Meet Mrs. Myers!
I am so excited to be working with the students and families at Mount Nittany Elementary for the third year! Prior to that, I was a school counselor in the Altoona Area School District and was a year-long substitute elementary and middle school counselor in the Tyrone Area School District. I graduated from Penn State with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Spanish before going on to Graduate School where a I earned a Master's of Education with an emphasis in Elementary School Counseling from Penn State.
I am a SCASD grad, and currently reside here in State College with my husband and black lab puppy, Stanley, who I love to play with, snuggle, and take on walks. I also teach dance in the evenings at a local dance studio, a passion I've had since being a competitive dancer and performer growing up and through college. I continue to choreograph and travel with my dance students to competitions. On Saturdays in the fall you can find me at my favorite place (besides the beach), Beaver Stadium, cheering on the Nittany Lions. I also love all things Pittsburgh sports and look for any chance to be at a Steelers, Penguins, or Pirates game. Additionally, spending time with my family, brothers, and cousins when I get the chance is always something I look forward to!
I love the opportunity to build relationships with students and families through my job as a school counselor and believe that helping students reach their academic, social-emotional, and career potential is of the utmost importance! I also strive to reduce any stigma around mental health by being a consistent and easily-accessible resource to ALL students so please don't be surprised or alarmed if your student reports meeting with me in some capacity. Please let me know how we can work together to help your student find success in school and in life!
