Welcome! Good morning, afternoon, or evening! I’m so glad you’ve found me. I am, Ms. Fernandez, the PARK MIDDLE School Counselor. As a school counselor, I help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.
I work to provide support services for all students. I am a resource and support for all staff members and parents, as well. Additionally, as a school counselor, I can be a liaison with outside community resources.
As this is NOT my first year in the Antioch School District, it is my first year here at PARK MIDDLE. I am looking forward to a GREAT year and getting to know each of YOU. Please feel free to come by to visit or say "Hi!" when you see me around.
