Mrs. D's Counseling Office

School Counseling

Hello! My name is Toni Durham, Mrs. D, the School Counselor at Red Bank Elementary School. This is my 23rd year in West Deptford, as a School Counselor. It is my job to help support students academically, socially, and emotionally throughout their time in the West Deptford School District and beyond. My goal is to foster growth and lifelong learning in out students.

I attended Rowan University (it was Glassboro State College when I began), where I received my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and Sociology. Then, I continued, to receive my Master's Degree in Student Personnel Services with a S.A.C Certification

I pride myself in creating relationships . You will find resources for students and parents, on this web page. I am also the 504 Case Manager and Anti-Bullying Specialist.

When I am not at work I love to read, workout, travel (I am a huge Disney fan), watch sports (all Philly teams), and spend time with my family. I have two sons, they are 21 and 18.
