Mrs. Julie VanDenBerg

Hello, this is my second year as a school counselor at Shawsheen Elementary School.   I moved to Colorado with my family from Dallas, Texas one year ago. Prior to living in Texas, I lived in Arizona and Chicago, IL,    I am the parent of a son and daughter, three dogs and a cat.   My husband and I enjoy hiking and long walks all around the amazing trails here in northern Colorado. 

I have been a school counselor for eighteen years.  I started my profession as a high school counselor and then middle school counselor and for the last eleven years I have been 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 graduated in December 2021 with a Master's in Social Work from Arizona State University.

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.
