Ms. Lena Penry

Hello Summerwind STEM Academy Students and Families!

I am happy and proud to be your school counselor. I became a school counselor in 2015 and worked in an Idaho middle school for 4 years before transitioning to Summerwind STEM Academy in 2019. Summerwind students, families, and staff are an amazing bunch of people. I am blessed to be a part of such a caring team.

As your child's school counselor, I support their social, emotional, and behavioral needs. I accomplish this through classroom lessons, small group counseling, short-term, individual counseling, and being a part of the BRTI committee.  I can also help direct parents to community resources and community counseling.
