"Be With Those Who Help Your Being" - Rumi
I am one of two certified school counselors at City Hill Middle School. I work with students whose last names begin with A through L. I see students individually, in groups and through classroom lessons. I collaborate with teachers and other staff to support students in the areas of academic achievement, high school planning and social/emotional development. I also case manage 504 plans for students whose last name fall in my alphabet range. My overarching goal is to help students with their developmental needs to help them be as successful as they can be and work toward achieving the vision of the graduate.
About Mrs. Snyder:
I've been a middle school counselor in Naugatuck for the majority of my career as a school counselor. I love what I do and love working with middle school students at City Hill. The middle school years can be tough for children (and parents) but it is also an important period in a person's development. I enjoy supporting children through the trials and tribulations of developing into an adolescent and helping them start to figure out their own identity. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, 3 children, extended family and friends.
