Thank You, IHS Counselors
It's National School Counseling Week, and we'd like to thank the team of seven counselors that collaborates to help students at Issaquah High School, along with support from their office team. Let’s get to know each of them a bit in today’s #NationalSchoolCounselingWeek highlight!
Hilde Tzemos: New to the district this year, Tzemos loves to bake elaborate birthday cakes and is such a huge reader that she calls herself not a bookworm, but rather a “book-dragon!”
Rachel Auffant: Arriving at I.H.S. by way of Beaver Lake Middle School, Mercer Island High School and Liberty High School, Auffant enjoys spending time hiking, reading, or loving on her dogs and chickens.
Emily Combellick: In her 12th year as an I.H.S. Eagle, Combellick also loves to bake and read (is this becoming a theme? ) as well as quoting movie lines. She loves I.H.S. because of its awesome students, caring staff and incredible community.
Maegan Pedersen: Also in her first year at I.H.S., Pedersen worked previously with middle and elementary students. In her free time, she loves spending time with family, going to the lake and enjoying the sunshine.
Madison McCune: Another I.H.S. first-year Eagle, McCune decided to become a counselor after working as a paraeducator and a counselor substitute. She enjoys spending time with her husband and puppy, cooking and exploring.
Stacy Clawson: Clawson returned to I.H.S. this year, and has been a school counselor in the district for 12 years. Born and raised in Redmond, Clawson attended college in California before returning to the area, where she lives with her husband and daughter.
Julianna Jenkins: After working at Issaquah Middle School, Jenkins joined the I.H.S. team this year. She loves spending time with her partner and dog, camping, the Gilmore Girls and Taylor Swift.
Thank you, I.H.S. counseling team, for caring for your students, staff and school community!
