"Our Students, Our Community, Our Success"
Welcome back Otsego Knights! I am so grateful to start this new year with you all! I am also very excited to introduce you to the practicum students that you will see helping in the counseling office. Please read up on their bios below and be sure to say hi when you see them around the building! I know you will make them feel as welcome as you have with me! I hope your 2018 is off to a great start!
Sincerely, Miss Syrowski
Meet Mrs. Jacoby
Hello Otsego Elementary! My name is Rachel Jacoby, and I am thrilled to be working with the students, parents and staff here. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Counselor Education at the University of Toledo. As part of my training, I am overjoyed to work with Ms. Syrowski as one of the School Counselors here. To provide you with a little bit of background information on me, I have been working as a mental health counselor with children between the ages of 18 months to 23 years, since 2013. I hold specializations in family life education, trauma focused care, play therapy, and foster care and adoption. In addition to working with you at Otsego, I am a graduate assistant at the University of Toledo, teaching two undergraduate level classes this semester and I work as a counselor at a private practice in Perrysburg. In addition to my crazy work schedules, I love spending time with my husband, Mike, my dog, Ziggy and my cat, Callie. Together, we love to travel and binge watch “The Office”. I will be working with Ms. Syrowski on Mondays. If you have any questions regarding my role at Otsego or my professional experiences, please let me know!
Meet Mrs. Miller
Mrs. Miller is a graduate student at the University of Toledo who is studying to become a Licensed School Counselor. She also obtained her Bachelor's Degree from UT...GO ROCKETS! Mrs. Miller is passionate about creating a positive and unconditional support system for all students to grow and flourish in. In her free time, you will find Mrs. Miller frolicking around downtown Toledo enjoying a Mud Hens or Walleye game, taking a hike with her husband and dogs, or hanging out with her niece, Harper.
Halloween fun is a must at Otsego Elementary. Gru and his minions are definitely up to something.
