Congratulations to our very own Nicole Mayers, Batavia Middle School Counselor who was recently selected by the New York State School Counselor Association as the NYS School Counselor of the Year!

Nicole has been a school counselor for 16 years with 8 years at her current position. Nicole works tirelessly with her colleagues and administrators to provide a comprehensive school counseling program. 

Currently, her focus is on school attendance, academic achievement and providing social emotional skills to students. Nicole was instrumental in implementing the daily SEL program to their middle school. Students are given daily SEL prompts, which have been especially beneficial in offering support during these months of COVID. 

 Nicole also is certified as a Trauma Illness and Grief Responder in her region so she can better support the students, staff and community.
