Hi! My name is Stephanie Almstrom and I am the School Counselor for Emilie Ritchen Elementary school, home of the SOARing Eagles!
I will be starting my 7th year (14th year as a school cousnelor) at Emilie Ritchen! I am so excited for the 2020-2021 school year. This is certainly not how I envision starting the school year. I miss seeing all my students! I love being a School Counselor because everyday I have the opportunity to help and advocate for students, but most importantly spread kindness. I am often referred to as " the lady that talks about kindness". During this distance learning my goal is to stay visible, and connected to all Ritchen students and families.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. A few hobbies of mine include; exercising, reading, going to the beach, and watching the Los Angeles Clippers play.
I look forward to getting to know you, and supporting you so that you may have a successful school year at Ritchen! Go Eagles!
