Northwest Elementary School


Meet The School Counselor

Mrs. Rebecca Herring, Professional School Counselor, M.Ed.

As a counselor, I strive to assist students and parents to prevent or intervene with academic, social, and emotional concerns. I want your child's experience at Northwest to be a positive, enriching experience. I make an effort to get to know every student, if not by name, certainly by face. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child and feel I may be able to help, please feel free to contact me at 594-4426 or at
