Meet the New Elementary Guidance Counselor for Upper Nyack and Valley Cottage Elementary Schools
It is with pride and honor that I introduce myself, Jon-Christopher Hogg, as one of the new elementary school counselors. I will be working at both Upper Nyack Elementary and Valley Cottage Elementary. I am thrilled to be a part of such an amazing group of administrators, teachers, staff, and most of all, families. This is going to be a fun year filled with learning, growing, and lots of new adventures. I cannot wait to get to know you, your family, and most importantly your child!
I have been working as a school counselor in the South Bronx for the past six years. I'm extremely excited to continue my career here at Nyack. I grew up in Rockland County where I graduated from Spring Valley High School. I earned my B.A from Temple University and obtained my M.S in school counseling from Mercy College. I currently live in Rockland County with my wife and two wonderful children.
At the moment, we are currently fine tuning our counseling program. My mission as a counselor is to meet the academic, personal, social emotional, and career goals of every student through classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling, and school wide initiatives. On an individual basis, to advocate for students' needs, interests and issues related to the stages of student development. Additionally to support families, and teachers to ensure the students have everything they need to be successful.
Once again, I am extremely excited to start this new journey and to meet all of you. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!!
Please feel free to reach out to me in September, I can be reached at 845 353- 7279, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr. Jon- Christopher Hogg
