I am happy to be the school counselor at Dale Avenue Elementary School! It is a joy to get to know the students and their parents each year and I love working with the youngest students in our district. It is my belief and passion that each student can succeed, when supported by caring and involved parents and provided with excellent instruction from our Dale Ave. teachers. 

When students need extra help, either with academics or behavior, I step in and assist the teachers in developing ideas and strategies to assist in the classroom. As a part of that help, I provide counseling, in-class lessons, meet with parents and facilitate the Intervention and Referral Services Team.  In addition, my role at Dale Ave includes being the Anti Bullying Specialist.  Sometimes a child needs support due to family issues, such as separation from a parent, bereavement or other family stressors. I am here to support our children during these times as well. Please keep me informed of any changes that you feel may impact your child if you would like my assistance in these areas.

I am always available to meet with parents and provide any support you may need to help your child succeed. Please stop by and say hello or email me at lrumley@paterson.k12.nj.us.
