GailHow did you come to be at Cambridgeport School?
I came to Cambridgeport when our school was just grades K-2. I had been working in the system as a Developmental Educator for the preschool team and they needed a Counselor here at Cambridgeport. For the first several years, I worked half time here and the other half in the preschool. I became full time as the school grew to 8th grade.

What is the best part of your day?
The best part of my day is when I arrive in the morning and hear so many children calling my name and saying, “Good morning!”

What do you like to do after school?
I work a second job at Mount Auburn Hospital here in Cambridge. My undergraduate work was in Medical Technology and I work in the Blood Bank.

What challenges you the most?
The thing that challenges me the most is being the only School Counselor in a building. It can be somewhat lonely; therefore, I often supervise graduate student interns to bring new and different perspectives as well as to support more students.
