My name is Mrs. Gross. I am excited to be the K-2 School Counselor at Deerfield, North and South Primary Schools.
I have been in the Blair School District since 2001. I spent 14 years teaching Biology, Forensic Science and Human Anatomy-Physiology at Blair High School. I am originally from Carroll, Iowa and graduated from Carroll Kuemper High School in 1996. From there I went to Briar Cliff College (now University) to study Biology and Secondary Education. I graduated from Briar Cliff in 2001. I received a Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction from Doane College in 2005 and a Master of School Counseling from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 2017.
As a school counselor, I teach bi-weekly Guidance Lessons in the domain areas of personal/social, academic and career as well as facilitate small groups and work with individual students. Students can be referred by any staff member, parent/guardian or themselves.
