Hello!  My name is Danielle Tucker, the School Counselor at Navajo Public Schools. This page provides you with information about the School Counseling program, upcoming counseling-related activities and events, and counseling topics and resources.

My job here at Navajo is to facilitate the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. A School Counselor is an integral member of the instructional team. I hope to directly impact student achievement by delivering comprehensive services that meet the needs of the 21st century school community.
