I am excited to announce the new guidance counselor for Hollymead. She will start working officially today, August 29 and will be in classrooms beginning tomorrow! Her picture and bio are below. I hope many of you can meet her on September 7 at Back to School Night.
My name is Ashley Gareau and I am the new school counselor at Hollymead Elementary. I recently moved to Charlottesville from Worcester, Massachusetts and I’m thrilled to be joining the Hollymead team! Prior to being at Hollymead, I worked as a school counselor in an elementary special education program in Massachusetts. I completed my Master’s in Counseling Psychology at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology in Newton, MA and my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Lafayette College in Easton, PA. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, gardening, reading, and spending time with my dog outside. I’m very excited to be at Hollymead and I’m looking forward to a great school year!
