Position: Full-time School Counselor
Classroom #: Office in Library
Getting to Know Me: Hi Everyone!
My name is Melissa Dude (a.k.a. Melissa Stevens), and I’m the counselor for Coral Canyon Elementary in the Washington County School District. The easiest way to reach me is by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 435-652-4787 ext. 305.
I recently moved to the beautiful state of Utah from the Midwest and love it here, but what I love most is supporting children through my experience as a school counselor for the past 10 years, but also as a professional counselor, social worker, and nurse in my previous careers. I firmly believe every child is capable of reaching his potential with the right supports in place. My role in your child’s life is to work with everyone here at school to determine what supports are needed, and ensure your child’s best interests are always at heart.
My role also extends beyond the school setting, so if your family is in need of additional supports or resources, I’m here to help connect you with what’s available in our community. We now have many of these supports accessible through the district website. Here are the steps to get there…
www.washk12.org ~ Parents and Students ~ Student & Parent Resources ~ Community Resources
Under this link you will find numerous resources related to education, parenting, financial assistance, health, mental health, housing, food, support groups, etc. Sorting through this information can be overwhelming, so I’m happy to help you find your way!
As a wife and mother, I know how very important the well-being of your child and your family means to you. If I can help in any way to support and nurture what’s important to you, don’t hesitate to contact me!
