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.
