Dear Parents and Guardians,
My name is Jill Collins and I will be serving as the West Shore Guidance Counselor this year. I received my bachelor’s degree in sociology and communications from the University of Massachusetts (Boston) and a master’s degree in K-12 school counseling from Central Connecticut State University. As a Milford resident myself, I am so happy to be a part of such a wonderful school and community!
As a school Guidance Counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, personal, and social development of all students. I look forward to offering support to the students, staff, families and community.
In the weeks ahead, I will be meeting with students individually and in small groups, conducting developmental guidance classroom lessons, meeting with parents, and collaborating with teachers and staff. I also plan to develop partnerships with community organizations in order to support the needs of all West Shore students and families.
Any student can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent. I encourage you to reach out if you have concerns regarding your child. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your interest and I look forward to a wonderful school year!
