House A Counselor

  • Mrs. Stephanie Montefinese, Ed.M.


    I am thrilled to be the House A school counselor for the 2019-2020 school year. This is my tenth year as a school counselor and I have enjoyed becoming a part of The School District of the Chathams.  I received my B.A. in Child Development at Florida State University and my Masters in Counseling Psychology from Rutgers University.  I am the advisor for WAAG (We're All Animal Guardians).  As the school counselor, moving up with the students from 6th grade to 8th grade allows for the opportunity to become part of the students middle school careers and I look forward to being an element of that growth.  This year I will be working with the students on their emotional, social,and academic concerns and development.  I will be able to aid in the development of their life skills and make this stepping stone in their lives as smooth as possible. I am here to assist with any concerns or issues that arise throughout the year. I am going to work closely with the students, parents, teachers, community, and administration to allow for a united and progressive year to come.  

    My door is ALWAYS open to any challenges that students are facing. It is my hope this year that each student will grow emotionally, socially, and academically with the involvement of my care and assistance. Please feel free to contact me via email at smontefinese@chatham-nj.org or phone at (973) 457-2500 ext. 3018.  Hopes for another wonderful year at Chatham Middle School!!
