Meet the School Counselors


My name is Chris Manley and I am one of the school counselors at Whittier Elementary.  I work to help all students foster connections with others, find belonging in our school community, and experience growth as a student and as a person.  The 2023 - 2024 school year marks my seventeenth year as an educator in the state of Idaho.   I am an alumni of Montana State University and Idaho State University.  Outside of school I enjoy running and adventuring with my family.  I look forward to learning and growing with our students at Whittier this year!

Hi there! I’m Charles Diemart and this is my sixth year at Whittier as a school counselor.   I’ve been working in education for the past fifteen years and have been fortunate to be a school counselor for the past eight years.  I earned my undergraduate degrees in Criminal Justice Administration and Social Science from Boise State University and completed my Masters Degree in Counseling also from BSU. I have a passion for learning and teaching about Neurocognitive Therapy as well as incorporating music into lessons. Outside of school I love to spend time with my family, play music, and stay active through running and cycling.
