Young people face greater risks than previous generations. Young adolescents are affected by our ever- changing world and are faced with more decisions than previous generations. Because of this, there are times when they are not able to achieve at their full academic potential.  The counselor's primary task is to help them become better learners by providing a comprehensive program that includes responsive services, individual planning, systems support and a guidance curriculum.

The Professional School Counselor is a certified teacher with a master's degree in school counseling. Ms. Farragh holds a B.S. in Education from Northern Michigan University, an M.S.W. from the University of Georgia, and an M.A.E. in School Counseling from Northern Michigan University. She has 28 years of experience working with children and their families as a teacher, school counselor, and clinical therapist.
