My name is Amanda Iannini and I am the Elementary School Counselor. I am happy to be back and part of such a wonderful school and community again this year!
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Penn State University and received my Master of Arts in Counseling (School Certified K-12) from Geneva College. Prior to joining the Hopewell Area School District, I worked as a Prevention Specialist at the South Side Area School District for seven years servicing students in grades Pre-K-12.
As a school counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, personal, and social development of all students. I look forward to offering support to the students, staff, families and community. I will be meeting with students individually, in small groups, conducting classroom guidance lessons, meeting with parents and collaborating with teachers and staff to benefit and meet the needs of all Hopewell Elementary students and families.
I am excited to share that my classroom lessons will focus on a monthly counseling theme. I am hoping by the end of the school year your child will not only build upon their social and emotional skills but add new ones to their toolbox as well. Below are the themes for this school year.
Positive Classroom Behavior
Any student can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent. I encourage open communication and for you to reach out if you have any questions regarding your child. If you would like for me to meet with your child please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached by email at [email protected] or phone 724-375-6691 Extension 1108.
I am looking forward to another great school year!
