Dear Highline Academy Families:
Hello! My name is Hilary-Jane McMinamen and I am thrilled to be your new school counselor at Highline Academy! I hail from Kansas and have lived in Denver for 8 years. I have a double masters degree in Community Counseling and School Counseling. My therapeutic background is in play therapy and my passion lies in coming alongside children and adolescents to help them become their best selves through the therapeutic process.
I am here to serve you, your family, and your student in many ways. If you or someone you know is in need of any social/emotional services, such as mediation, counseling referrals, parenting resources, food, clothing, or simply just a place to talk more about your student’s needs, please come see me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, my work phone is 303-759-7808 Ext. 1105, and my blog is http://highlineacademyschoolcounseling.blogspot.com.
The first opportunity Highline Counseling Services can offer you is our community garden and/or our backpack program. If you or someone you know is in need of extra food, please consider contacting me so that Highline can give you both fresh produce from our garden and/or canned food from our backpack program. Each Friday I will be sending home food from our backpack program and/or school garden. If this is a service you would like to receive, please contact me so that I can prepare food to go home with your child on Friday.
Again, I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Highline family and serve you all this year. Please stop by my office to introduce yourself if I haven’t met you already.
Hilary-Jane McMinamen (Mrs. M)
