Professional School Counselor

General Info

Good day and welcome to Ms. Day’s information web page.  I am grateful to have you join me.  My role in the Union Township School Corporation family is to assist our students on a multitude of levels such as academic support, organizational skills, career planning, coping strategies, peer relationships, setting goals, consultation and collaboration to name a few.  My services are not limited to the students I serve, but to the faculty, stakeholders, and the community in which I work, as well.  I give what I can when I can to whom I can.


About Education

I graduated with a B.S. degree in psychology from St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Indiana with a minor in criminal justice.  Several years after college, I took the steps to acquire my M.S. degree in education at Purdue University in Hammond, Indiana.  In the process, I gained certification in expressive arts therapy, as well.


About Bio

I have been with Union Township School Corporation since August 2014 as a professional school counselor at Wheeler High School.  Prior to coming to Wheeler, I interned at Lake Central High School in St. John, Indiana with around 1100 logged hours.  The internship experience has prepared me for the many challenges I work around in guiding and counseling our students.  Being a school counselor has given my life the greatest meaning.  My best days at Wheeler include being involved in our students’ lives.

I was born and raised in Crown Point, Indiana where I currently live with my two dogs, Elle Rigbea and Sgt. Pepper.  My greatest personal passion is cooking and baking, especially around the holidays (and with much anticipation from family and friends).


Class Schedule

My day is structured a little differently than our teachers.  My typical day in the office begins at 7 am and ends a little after 3 pm.  I am also available by appointment when necessary.
