Mrs. Tammy Hofer
I am glad you stopped by to visit my page! I am the school counselor at Murphy Elementary and absolutely love my job! Initially, I started my career in other fields....banking, retail management, human resources, etc. After a few years, my interest in working with children in a helping capacity grew and I enrolled in graduate school to study Professional & School Counseling. I started my career as a school counselor in 1999 and have never looked back.
My job is very fast paced and I love the challenge and variety that it brings. I do many things as a school counselor and enjoy getting to know all of our students through the various activities that I am involved in. Some of my favorite tasks/roles as a school counselor are teaching classroom lessons, facilitating small counseling groups, individual counseling/consulting with students and families, facilitating 504 and IEP Referrals, and coordinating various school services projects/activities. I can honestly say that everyday is different than the day before.
When I am not at school you can often find me spending time with my husband, son and dog, reading, studying foreign languages, traveling or playing golf.
Should you need assistance with your child and/or have questions regarding ways that I may be of help, please feel free to contact me at the above phone number or email address. I know that together we can help make the 2016-2017 school year a success for your child!!
