Waverly Middle School appoints counselor

The Waverly Central School District is pleased to announce that Jennifer Hubbard has been appointed as Middle School counselor.

Mrs. Hubbard will provide academic, career and personal counseling services to students in grades 6-8 as part of the district's revamped middle school program.

According to Superintendent Randy Richards, the district moved away from the former middle school program to a "junior high" model at the end of the 2011 school year as a cost saving measure.

"The junior high model left our youngest - and sometimes most challenging - students without dedicated middle school services and treated them as part of the general high school population," said Dr. Richards.

After a few years, the decision was made to return to the middle school model and a program which better fits the developmental and academic needs of students in grades 6-8.

"In June 2014, the Board of Education set the goal of adding a dedicated school counselor for the middle school program, but many steps had to be accomplished before that could be done," said Dr. Richards.

Those steps included hiring middle school administration and support staff, developing a new middle school master schedule, working on curriculum and adding teaching staff. In addition, the physical office space at the high school was reworked to include separate high school and middle school offices, as well as school counseling and health offices.

"Once those steps were completed, we were at a point where we could hire a counselor to work with our 335 middle school students," said Dr. Richards.

Mrs. Hubbard served as a school counselor for the Polk County School Board in Bartow, Florida for five years and has six years of teaching experience. She holds Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Florida Southern College and a Master of Arts in Counseling from Webster University in Lakeland, Florida.

"Mrs. Hubbard's experience in working with students of all abilities will be a great asset to our students and faculty," said Dr. Richards. "She will work from the district's new guidance plan to ensure that a proactive approach is taken to meet the needs of all our students."

Mrs. Hubbard began her duties on January 11. She can be contacted by calling 607-565-8101, ext. 1013. Please join us in welcoming her and her family to our community.
