Student Assistance Counselor
Hello Freshman Academy!
My name is Diana Russo and I am the Student Asistance Counselor serving both south and east campus. After recieving a Master's in Counseling from Rider University, I jumped at the chance to become a counselor in Perth Amboy School District. I have close ties with the community, as both of my parents were born and raised in Perth Amboy, and I myself reside minutes away. I am passionate about working with students to assist them in moving past their struggles, making them feel validated, and helping them to reflect on, as well as reach, their full potential. I have the privilege of working with some of the most inspiring and talented youth, and I am thrilled to continue my journey with the students of PAPS. Go Panthers!!
Please feel free to connect with me during school hours through phone or email, as listed below. Additionally, I will frequently post resources on my Google Classroom, including academic and mental health related content.
Best, Diana Russo MA SAC NCC LAC
