Miss Nichole Hale
Hi! My name is Nichole Hale and I am the school counselor at the Intermediate School. The 2019-2020 school year is my second year working at the Intermediate School. While I now live in Lancaster County and work in Lebanon County, I originate from Carroll County, Maryland where my family moved to in 2002. After graduating from Century High School, I attended Bridgewater College in Virginia and completed my Bachelors of Science in Psychology. At Bridgewater College, I learned that I wanted to have a career in a helping profession and soon after narrowed my career choice down to school counseling.
Soon after graduating, I moved to Pennsylvania and began working for Wellspan Philhaven as a TSS (theraputic support staff). In this position, I worked with students who had diagnoses such as ADHD, Autism, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and Anxiety. I helped these students meet their behavioral goals in school, in the community, and at home. In my first year as a TSS, I attended McDaniel College and later attended and graduated from Millersville University with a Masters of Education in School Counseling. I am certified as a school counselor from kindergarten to the 12th grade. I enjoyed interning in the ELCO school district back in 2014 and have enjoyed seeing many students succeed.
Besides my passion in school counseling, I enjoy hanging out with my fiance, friends and family, traveling to other states and countries, and reading any type of book. With my brother being active duty Coast Guard and my father being retired Coast Guard, I have gotten the chance to visit and see a lot of what our country has to offer. Finally, I am thrilled to become part of the ELCO community and family. I look forward to working with each student and family.
