Miss Grazia (Grace) Saile, School Counselor/Traveling Counseling Interventionist
Hello! My name is Grace Saile, and I am a School Counselor for Washington Township. I will be travelling between three of the elementary schools: Birches, Wedgwood, and Whitman. I graduated from Rowan University in 2017 and earned my Masters in School Counseling from Montclair State University at Montclair State University in 2019. I have worked in elementary schools, high schools, and most recently at Rowan University. I am so excited to be back in elementary schools! I can help students through individual counseling, group counseling, and classroom lessons. I help students develop coping skills, solve problems, and regulate emotions. We also work on things such as self-esteem, social skills, conflict resolution, and communication. You can reach me by phone or email for any referrals, questions, or concerns you might have. I am so excited about joining this team and getting to know all the students!
