Miss Rachel Simonetti, School Counselor

I am very excited to join the School Counseling team this year for the Washington Township School District! I am a proud graduate of Rowan University and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2019, as well as my Masters of Arts in Counseling in Educational Settings in 2021. Prior to working at Washington Township, I worked at an elementary school in Audubon, NJ as a school counselor for students in their summer program. I am looking forward to using my knowledge and previous experience to create engaging and informative counseling interventions in a classroom, group, and individual setting that attend to academic, career, and social and emotional development. I am in the unique position in that I will be traveling and working at all six elementary schools on a rotation schedule. I am thrilled to get to know and work with your students this school year!

In my free time, I enjoy planning and going on trips to Disney World, rooting for the Philadelphia Phillies, and spending time with my family, friends, and three cats!
