Olenick, Nicole - School Counselor

 

Nicole Olenick

 

My name is Nicole Olenick and I am the new School Counselor at Weaverville Primary school! I am originally from right outside of Baltimore and I attended undergraduate school at Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) But for the past few years I have been proud to call Weaverville my home. My husband, my 2 year old son and I enjoy being a part of the Weaverville Community and I am so excited to be at Weaverville Primary School.

I am here to support teachers, children, parents and the whole school! My hope is to provide support and assistance to ensure that all children succeed and do their personal best in academic and social settings while molding their bright futures. I work with teachers and students in so many ways throughout the year:

- 2 times per month I will do classroom lessons (like a "Special") to talk about friendships, feelings, etc
- Meet with students individually as issues arise
- Run small groups and mentoring programs for students
- Conference and collaborate with parents and students as needed

I hope students view me as a person they know a safe adult who can support them at school. I hope all children feel comfortable to talk to me and know that I am here to help! Please contact me or your child's teacher if you would like to have more information about the counseling program, discuss a student's needs, or need further resources. I am always happy to help! Thanks for letting me be apart of the Weaverville Primary Family!
