About Me

Hello! I'm glad you dropped by. My name is Abby Stratton, and I am the 7th and 8th grade School Counselor. For the past six years, I have received my Bachelor's and Master's at Ohio University. My certification includes K-12 School Counseling: M.Ed. in Counselor Education with a specialization in School Counseling. Since I recently completed my master's degree in K-12 counseling, I am quite familiar with the stress of being a student. It is always an adventure!

As a member of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), I am held to the highest of ethical standards and expected to continue my growth as a professional. The American School Counselor Association supports school counselors' efforts to help students focus on academic, career and social/emotional development so they achieve success in school and are prepared to lead fulfilling lives as responsible members of society. ASCA provides professional development, publications, research and advocacy to school counselors around the globe.
