Welcome! My name is Denise Liscum and I am the middle school counselor for students in grades 6-8. I believe Montgomery Area Middle School's counseling program provides a student-centered approach that strives to meet the unique academic, social, and emotional needs of our middle school students.
Being a middle school student involves many new challenges such as adjusting to new teachers and classes, meeting new friends, developing new study habits and making important decisions. My role as counselor is to help students and their families navigate through their middle school years. Some of my responsibilities include:
1. Serving as a liaison between parents, students and teachers
2. Offering brief individual and group counseling
3. Monitoring conflict mediation sessions
4. Teaching/Co-teaching lessons on career education and work topics
I welcome phone calls, email, and meetings with parents and guardians. Please contact me regarding any questions or concerns you have regarding your child (email@example.com and 547-1608 ext. 115). We will work together to ensure that your son/daughter has a healthy, successful, and exciting middle school experience!
