My name is Amy Sylvester-Knudtson and I am a School Counselor at Phoenix Middle School in the Delavan-Darien school district. This is my first year as a professional School Counselor and I am beyond thrilled to work with all of the students, staff, parents, and community members in the district!
I received my bachelors degree from UW-Whitewater in 2014 in Elementary Education. During my undergraduate career, I had the privilege of student teaching abroad in Cuenca, Ecuador for two months. While abroad, I was able to practice my Spanish speaking skills each and every day with my host family and students. I am looking forward to continuing to learn the Spanish language with my Spanish speaking students and families!
I decided to stay at UW-Whitewater for my masters degree in Counseling with an emphasis in School Counseling. During this three year period, I was able to continue spending quality time in many local schools, working closely with students of all ages.
My mission as a first year counselor is to learn from those around me while bridging gaps between the many key stakeholders involved in our children’s learning! I want to continue to create and implement a comprehensive school counseling program that empowers all students to grow and develop into their highest potential.
