Our Counselor


My name is Mrs. Funches. I am the school counselor at Winslow Twp. Elementary School One . I have a B.A in psychology , M.A in Counseling Services from Rider University and I am certified by the state of New Jersey as a K-12 school counselor.  

As the school counselor, I have the privilege of supporting  students and families. I work with students in classrooms, in small groups, and in individual short-term counseling sessions. I provide support in crisis situations and consult with parents/guardians and teachers to develop plans in addressing academic, social and emotional challenges students may face. I look forward to establishing a positive relationship with each of you as we work  together  to maximize the academic, social, and emotional abilities of your child. While I cannot promise perfection at every turn, I can assure you that I will work hard each and every day to provide your son or daughter with the best possible guidance as they progress in their school experience.
