Meet Ms. Wells
I am excited to be the counselor here at Highlands four days a week! My entire career has been in education and I love it! I have a Bachelors in Social Psychology from Tufts University, a Masters in School Counseling from UNLV and an Educational Specialist from U of I. Being an educator and working with students, families and staff is my passion.
Please do not hesitate to reach out for support. I am in classrooms, offer small groups in the fall & spring, support our school wide Toolbox Tools program, provide short term individual counseling, help families access community resources, manage 504's and help provide Tiered support for our students.
When I am not at school I enjoy time with my family & friends, traveling, skiing, camping and going to concerts. It is an honor to do what I do. I look forward to knowing you. I am at Highlands Tuesday-Friday. Please reach out any time!
