M.A. School Counseling

Miss Krista Samuels

Hi! My name is Krista Samuels, the new guidance counselor at Emmons! I received my M.A. in school counseling from Monmouth University in 2017. Last school year I had the pleasure of working in my first school counseling position at an elementary school in the Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District! I now look forward to working with all of you as part of the Pemberton Township school community. My role as a school counselor in the district will be assisting students to reach their goals by addressing the academic, career, and social skills necessary to achieve quality learning and lifelong success. I believe in being a leader and advocate for my students both in the school and outside community. My job includes offering support to students, staff, and families. I will be meeting with students individually and in small groups, conducting guidance lessons, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all Emmons students and families. I encourge you to reach out if you have any concerns regarding your child. I am available to meet with you if you have any concerns, and have many outside resources to recommend as needed. I can be reached by email at ksamuels@pemb.org or phone at 609-893-8141 ext. 1044. 

**Confidentiality**

Please note that any information discussed is confidential between your child and myself unless they are planning on hurting themselves, hurting someone else, or someone is hurting them.
