Hello! My name is Kathy Laffoon and I am the School Counselor for grades K-7 at McGraw. I am a graduate of Alfred University where I obtained my Masters of Science in Education and Certificate of Advanced Study in 2009. I currently hold a Provisional School Counseling Certificate for grades Pre K- 12. This is my second year in McGraw Central School District. My previous experience was working with at risk youth at the William George Agency. I worked with both children and families to provide counseling. I also worked as the Assistant Director of Admissions.
Typical topics I work with are:
School work challenges
Making new friends
Change or Loss
Help to make good choices
Transition to Middle School
I provide individual and small group counseling for students grades K-7.
I welcome phone calls and emails from parents if there are any concerns regarding your student.
I can be reached at 607-836-3654 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
