Bio: Hello! My name is Ms. Bernstein and I am the 10th Grade School Counselor. This is my first year with Woodlawn High School. Before becoming a school counselor, I worked in pre-college programming and AmeriCorps programming. A fun fact about me is that I lived and worked in Malaysia in 2017 and studied abroad in Brazil in 2014. I love learning about new places! Some of my hobbies include listening to audiobooks written by comedians, completing jigsaw puzzles, painting, and voice acting.

 

My goal as a counselor is to make sure that all my students feel supported and have what they need to succeed. Please reach out to me if you would like to talk about college/career preparation, processing/overcoming challenges, or just to chat!
