Castle Rock Counseling

Counselor Introduction:

Welcome to Castle Rock Charter School. My name is Mark Nelson, and I am the School Counselor. This is my second year working at Castle Rock, and I could not be more thrilled to be here. Being that it's my second year here, i still consider myself somewhat new to the area. I enjoy spending the majority of my time lifting weights, watching sports and spending time with my family. In addition to my counseling duties at Castle Rock, I also coach the 6th-8th grade co-ed Basketball team with John Murphy. 

As your school counselor, I am available to assist you with academic, social, career and emotional issues. I am available to listen to you whenever you feel confused, sad, lonely, angry, or just want to chat. I am also available for your family. I assist your teachers and school administration in helping to prepare you for your future, and in helping you become a productive and successful member of the community. 

You may often see me roaming the halls or dropping in and out of classrooms. I love engaging with students and talking about anything and everything. Feel free to drop by my office at any time. I am currently located in Room 9, which also serves as the Math Lab.
