Counselor's Corner

  • Hi! My name is Stephanie Almstrom and I am the School Counselor for Emilie Ritchen Elementary school, home of the SOARing Eagles!


    I have been the school counselor at Ritchen for 6 years, however, I have been a school counselor for 13 years. 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".


    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!
