The Planning Room is for EVERYONE - students, families, faculty, staff and administrators.
ABS "Tree House" is located directly across from the cafeteria. John Terko (School Principal), Saveta Saini (School Counselor), Shari Carr (Behavior Specialist) support students that need to be away from their classrooms.
WCS Planning Room is located within the Direction Center and is co-directed by Nadine Paffett-Lugassy and Joe Carr.
The Planning Room is a place to tell what happened and get help solving a problem.

I am a certified Teaching Parent through Appalachian State University/Bringing It All Back Home, have completed some relevant graduate work (Reality Therapy, Discipline with Dignity and Responsive Classroom), have undergraduate degrees in Human Services and Psychology from Vermont College and Norwich University. I enjoy disc golf, spending time with family, friends and animals (dogs, dolphins and turtles), photography, reading, book club, going to the gym, Weight Watchers, church, cooking... If you have a question or comment please share. Everyone is a life long learner. I hope to be available whenever you need me!
