Maggie Desch Heritage School Counselor

Welcome to my page!  I am the School Counselor.  I started as a School Counselor with the De Pere School District in 1996 after two years with another district.  I have two adult children, Katie and Tyler  My Masters is in Education Psychology with a emphasis in Counseling from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
 
 
As the school counselor I wear many hats.  If your kids talk of Life Skills class, that's me.  I meet with every class once a week, please don't be surprised that your child knows who I am.  In class we focus on grade level topics such as:  Self-Esteem, Protective Behaviors and Personal Safety, Friendship skills, Conflict Resolution, Study skills, Anger Management Skills,  Character Education,  Goal setting, and Careers.  I also meet with small groups.  Groups can be on Social Skills, Friendship Skills, Anger Management, and Changing Families.  I do short term counseling with individual students.  And finally, I am a resource for the staff, students, and families.
