Hello Lakeside Parents and Students,

Welcome Back to School!

I am thrilled to introduce myself as a new School Counselor at Lakeside Middle School.  My name is Allison Carella and I will be working with students with last names L-Z. I am so excited to be your students' School Counselor. This is my first year as a school counselor and I consider myself to be lucky to pursue my passion at Lakeside Middle School. I am so excited about getting started and I cannot wait to meet everyone.

I have worked in a Pre-Kindergarten to 8th grade school since 2017. I love working with children and hope you take comfort in knowing that I also want what is best for your child(ren). In my role as the academic counselor, my primary objective is to create an environment where every student can strive to be the best version of themselves. I do not seek perfection; instead, I aim to promote progress and growth. Additionally, I will be overseeing the Intervention and Referral Service team and collaborating with students who have 504 plans to provide them with the necessary support.

My goal is to make sure each student at Lakeside feels safe and comfortable within our school community. I am excited to engage your children in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) lessons that will include vital topics such as executive functions, coping skills, career readiness, and more. If you have any questions or concerns about your child, do not hesitate to reach out. I am here to work collaboratively with you to ensure your child's success and well-being throughout their journey at Lakeside Middle School.  It is essential to me that you understand I share your aspirations for the success and flourishing of your child(ren).

Best Wishes,

Ms. Allison Carella
