Dear Parents, Guardians, Staff, and Students,
My name is Rachel Moczarski and I am the School Counselor at Oakside Elementary School. I am a Graduate from New York University with my Masters in School Counseling Certified K-12 and I received my Bachelor's Degree from Syracuse University in Child and Family Studies. I have been working closely with children and adolescents for several years and I am thrilled to be part of the Peekskill Community!
As the School Counselor, I am here to foster the social, emotional, and personal growth of students in order for students to be successful. I am here to provide counseling services to all students in order to promote a safe and supportive school environment that ensures a positive experience for all students, staff and administration. I conduct individual and group counseling in addition to classroom lessons that focus on developing peer relationships, social skills, decision making, conflict resolution, behavior management, coping strategies, and explore safe and healthy choices.
Students can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about your child, my door is always open! I am looking forward to an excellent school year!
