Hi! My name is Kevin McDermott and I am the school counselor for Rev. Brown and Pope John Middle School. The 2017-2018 school year will be my third year here and I am very excited to have the opportunity to continue to work with the students of this great community. I am a licensed school counselor with a Master's degree from Montclair State University and a Bachelor's degree from the University of Scranton. I am very passionate about school counseling, and believe that every student is entitled to equal and effective counseling. It is my goal that each student feels comfortable approaching with me with any issue he or she may be experiencing. My personal belief is that the school counselor's office should be a place of comfort for all. I believe that if a student feels comfortable in his or her environment, he or she will thrive academically, personally, socially, and spiritually. It is my privilege to be able to do my part in ensuring that the students of Rev. Brown have a nurturing environment that fosters growth and success. I look forward to another successful and fulfilling school year!
