I would like to welcome you to the beginning of another school year. My name is Susy Smothers and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you and your children as we start another school year. This is my 4th year as an elementary school counselor and 9th year as an educator -- before getting my Masters Degree in School Counseling, I was a middle/high school English teacher and enjoyed teaching every grade 6-12. I am now a certified elementary and secondary school counselor and I was recently recognized as a National Certified Counselor. I am also a member of professional organizations including the American School Counselors Association, Washington School Counselor Association,and the National Board for Certified Counselors, Inc.; organizations that provide ethical standards of practice and professional development. Outside of school, I enjoy being outdoors, traveling, running, and spending time with my husband, son, and Australian cattle dog.

I am available daily to help students, parents, and teachers. I look forward to working with the Madison Community. I feel so lucky to be returning to such a supportive learning environment.

Welcome to another fantastic year!
