Mr. Larry Leroux
Counselor: grade 9, admissions

Mr. Leroux
I have been a School Counselor for the past twenty years and this is my thirteenth year at Pathfinder. Starting with the 2012-13 school year I will be the freshmen counselor and the Admissions Coordinator. I believe our main role is to provide a safe and comfortable atmosphere which will allow the student the freedom to communicate their issues and concerns. This will lead to a better understanding of their emotional and social problems. I also encourage input from teachers, parents/guardians and support personnel. Guidance is a resource for career and college exploration, scheduling appropriate courses and writing letters of recommendations. The role of a counselor is multifaceted and that is why I enjoy my chosen career.

Counselor: grades 10-12, last names A-K

Ms. Bearce
Hello! My name is Stephanie Bearce and starting this year I am the counselor for grades 10, 11, and 12 for students with last names A-K. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with our students in any way possible, from applying to college to finding their place in the working world, as well as the daily goings on within each school day. Every day brings new opportunities and challenges for our students, and I am here to assist and encourage! Our students have so much potential, and as a counselor a large part of my job is to help them realize this as they prepare to go out into the world as the best possible version of themselves. If there is anything I can do to help, please don't hesitate to ask!

Mrs. Turner
Hello, My Name is Brenda Turner and I'm happy to be be the school counselor who will be working with students in grades 10, 11, and 12 with last names that start with the Letters L-Z. As a Pathfinder graduate, I possess a strong personal connection with the school and feel very fortunate to be working at the place that provided me with such a positive and rewarding high school experience! My main goal each year is to assist our students in meeting their full potential--pushing them to do, and be, their very best. I really enjoy working with students to help them find success in school and in life. I look forward to helping Pathfinder students and parents, so please let me know if there's any way that I can be of assistance.

Mrs. Janet Rivers

Mrs. Rivers
Welcome! I'm Janet Rivers, Secretary in the Guidance Department. Along with maintaining student files, I also do a few other things around here. When you've forgotten your locker combination, come see me. When you've lost your schedule and you can't remember what your next class is, come see me. When your contact information (address, phone number, etc.) has changed, come see me. When you are ready to send out your applications for college and scholarships, come see me so I can issue an official transcript for you. By the way, did you know that your school record is kept on file for 60 years!? When you apply for employment after graduation, your employer may be contacting me to verify your graduation date, even if it's 10 or more years after you've graduated! So when folks tell you it's important to have a high school diploma, believe them.

Mrs. Denise Scott

Mrs. Scott
Hello, my name is Dee Scott, and I wear many hats at Pathfinder. First and foremost, I am responsible for Student Information which includes address, telephone numbers, parent/guardian, and other codes regarding information required by the Dept. of Education and reported to the State at various times during the school year. For mailing purposes and emergency phone calls, it is imperative that I am informed when a student has had a change in guardian, address, or phone number(s).
In May, I coordinate our annual Awards Banquet. The banquet is held to acknowledge our hard working and extremely deserving students who have excelled in either academics, technical areas or both. During the summer I test our incoming Freshmen in English & Math for placement purposes, record and distribute the information to necessary personnel. I can be reached in the Guidance Office at extension 248 between 9 and 3:30, Monday through Friday.
