My name is Ashley LaVine and I am one of the School Counselors at Fort Ann Central School. I feel privileged to be able to counsel students in kindergarten to 12th grade in the district, working so closely with our students and families. I love being a School Counselor because I have the opportunity to be a part of such a great district and community in a helping role as an advocate for students and families.
My main goal is to help promote student success in academic, personal, social, and career development. I collaborate and consult with teachers, parents, and community agencies to help achieve this goal. Short term/crisis counseling as well as small group counseling is provided. I facilitate many positive programs within the school for kindergarten to 12th grade, such as character education and the student-of-the-month program in the elementary building. I also work with K-12 students on anti-bullying.
