Hello! My name is Lisa Hale, and I am excited to be your counselor here at Paramount Elementary. I have been a counselor in the district since 2013 (with my Friday’s spent here at Paramount since 2016!). I love being an advocate for students and helping them achieve academic, social, and emotional growth. Some of the tools I use include classroom presentations, small groups, and individual sessions to teach important life skills, such as conflict resolution, communication skills, and coping with challenging emotions or difficult situations.
I earned my undergraduate degree from Boise State University in Criminal Justice and my graduate degree from University of Idaho in School Counseling (Does that make me a bronco? A vandal? Maybe a brandal?)
When I am not spending my time with the amazing students, parents, and staff at Paramount, I am a mom to two smart and funny teens, two crazy dogs, and a cat who runs the house. I love camping, game nights, yard and house projects, and friends!
Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions, concerns and/or are in need of resources.
