Welcome to Ms. Gierke's School Counseling Office!
I was born and raised here in North Tonawanda and love the community I'm a part of. I have a passion for working with kids so being here at the Elementary level is very exciting! As a school counselor, I do individual and group counseling. I use a goal oriented and solution focused approach to counseling while finding the best fit for each student. I also go into every classroom once a month to teach students about emotional intelligence and feeling word vocabulary that matches a color on the Mood Meter.
In addition, I coach JV Cheerleading at North Tonawanda High School. I have coached cheerleading through NTAA and the High School for a total of eight years. I LOVE the teamwork, hard work and laughter that comes from every practice and competition! GO JACKS!
