My name is Anita McKiernan. I will be the eighth grade counselor here at Silver Hills Middle School during the 2020 - 2021 school year. I absolutely love having the opportunity to work in the wonderful community I have called home for over ten years. This is my thirteenth year as a professional school counselor. I am passionate about helping every student reach their full potential.
In working with all students my goal is to empower all students by assisting them in identifying and achieving educational, career, personal, and social goals. To gain an understanding social/emotional and academic/career aspects to support his/her learning. I strive to help all students feel understood, valued and heard.
In my spare time, I enjoy photography, spending time with my family, friends and my dog Jax, going to concerts, watching movies, reading, and being outdoors. I look forward to a fabulous year together as we navigate the final year in middle school and set a course for high school planning.
