Counseling





I realize that you may be struggling with the new and unprecedented ways in which students will attend school this upcoming year. As the School Counselor, I am here to support you in any way I can. Please know that I can assist students both in person and remotely with social, emotional, and academic concerns. While we may not physically be in school full time, I am accessible by email and phone, and can plan a time to discuss any concerns you may have.

Donna O'Donnell

Meet the Counselor

Welcome! I am Donna O’Donnell, the school counselor here at Intervale Elementary School. I have been here at Intervale for twenty one years and think of it as my second home. Before becoming a counselor, I was a sixth grade teacher and then raised my four children. Having such a love for children, I decided to go back to school to become a school counselor as my kids got older. That is why I always tell parents that I have a degree in counseling psychology and school counseling but I am a mom first which helps greatly in working with my students and their parents. In addition to being the counselor, I am also the anti-bullying specialist, chairperson for the Intervention and Referral Services Committee as well as having many other duties at Intervale. I think of each student at the school as my own, seeing to their social, emotional and academic well being. I work closely with the staff to ensure that all children entering our building feel safe and welcomed. I am a firm believer that the school and home must work together in order for a child to succeed. Outside of school, you will find me spending time with my eight grandchildren, friends or reading.
