Mrs. Julie VanDenBerg
Hello, this is my first year as a school counselor at Shawsheen Elementary School. I am very excited to be here. I moved to Colorado with my family from Dallas, Texas this summer. Prior to living in Texas, I lived in Arizona and prior to that Chicago, IL. I have one daughter and one son and three dogs. My husband and I enjoying hiking, and long walks all around the amazing trails here in northern Colorado.
I have been a school counselor for seventeen years. I started my profession as a high school counselor and then middle school counselor and for the last ten years I am following my true passion as an elementary counselor.
I received my masters in counseling with a school counseling emphasis from Northern Arizona University, I also received an M.ED in Education with a K-8th teaching certificate (also from Northern Arizona University). I graduate in December 2021 with a Master's in Social Work from Arizona State University.
I value equity and believe in the personal dignity and value of each student and family that I serve. I do believe ALL students should have access to a high quality education and I am committed to helping all students reach their full academic, social and emotional potential.
