Introducing Our School Counselor
Sara Donaldson

  Hello and welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!  I am fully committed to serving the students, staff, teachers and parents of WHES by enriching each studentís academic achievement as well as creating a safe environment for learning. 

   I moved to Virginia eleven years ago having originated from Minnesota.  I worked as a respiratory therapist for 10 years, during which I obtained my Bachelorís degree in Psychology and Masterís in Guidance and Counseling, both, from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Prior to arriving at Hanover County,  I had the privilege of serving the students of Tappahannock Elementary School in Essex County.  I also completed an internship at Parkview Elementary School in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  I hope to bring a sense of creativity to the already dynamic and accomplished staff here at WHES.  I look forward to working with you and your student throughout the year.  Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time if I can be of assistance.


 Our Mission:  Hanover County School Counselors provide all students educational services, in collaboration with parents, school and the community, that foster
                       academic, career and social/emotional growth toward lifelong success and effective, responsible citizenship for a diverse and changing world.
