Ms. Stephanie Mabry

Stephanie Mabry is Graduate Student from Butler University completing her national certification in school counseling. She has spent 15 years in academic teaching prior to this major accomplishment. Her primary goal as a bilingual school counselor is to develop a comprehensive school counseling program based upon national standards, which meets the academic, social and emotional priorities of the school district. Stephanie acknowledges that Estes Park has set the goal for each student to develop global outcomes by graduation, and knows that fostering an environment of support and inclusion with students and staff is critical for this goal achievement. She believes that all students deserve support while fulfilling a four-year plan which reflects their future goals; whether that be employment, enlistment, or enrollment in post-secondary education. 

Her experience and education have provided extensive skills in different development levels and facets of school counseling, including: 
● Semester middle school practicum/Year-long high school internship
● Both individual and group counseling sessions for all developmental levels
● Grief and crisis counseling
● Suicide prevention (QPR) training
● Student academic, social, and emotional lesson plan development and implementation
● College and postsecondary planning
● Knowledge of technology resources in a counseling setting
● Multi-tiered comprehensive school counseling plan

Finally, she believes that relationships hold the key to success in an educational setting and that the relationship the school has with students, parents, staff and community is vital in creating a transformational educational experience for each student.
