DNG Counselor Mandy Fernihough
I am so happy to be the School Counselor at Daniel Ninth Grade Campus! This is my 2nd year as a school counselor and my 17th year as an educator. I am here to serve all of our students.
I love being a part of students' lives and helping develop essential academic, social, emotional, and career readiness skills. I will be providing guidance lessons to every student at DNG. I will also provide individual and small group counseling sessions to students with an identified need. I will also be providing all students with academic planning to ensure a successful high school career.
I provide support to students of all ages, races, cultural backgrounds, and circumstances to empower students to discover their strengths and passions in order to be college, career, and community ready. Guidance lessons, small group counseling, and individual counseling will focus on the following topics:
- Goal setting/Decision Making/Planning
- Motivation to Achieve
- Responsible Behavior/Character Education
- Stress Management
- Communication Skills
- Student Leadership
- Cross-Cultural Effectiveness
- Interpersonal/Intrapersonal Effectiveness
- Self Confidence Development
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns! I am looking forward to a great year!
