Ms. Karin Bendoraitis, On-site Mental Health Counselor
I am S. A. Hull's on site mental health counselor for the 2020-2021 school year. I am excited to get to know the school, students, parents, and staff. I've been working with children and adolescents for the last nine years in various positions: early learning instructor, tutor, teacher, applied behavior analysis instructor, and mental health counselor. My academic background includes a bachelor of science in Psychology and a master of science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. It is my belief that each child is doing their best to meet their needs with the tools they have in that moment. Tools could be social skills, emotional skills, coping skills, behavior strategies, ways of expressing self, thinking patterns, etc. My job as a counselor is to help children develop the additional tools they need to thrive and succeed in life. It is such a privilege to be a part of their growth and I look forward to becoming part of the Panther Pride family.
