School Counselor

meet our new counselor!

Hello! My name is Mrs. McDonnell, and I am thrilled to be your new School Counselor at Del Rio Elementary. I am excited to meet you all and to serve this community!

I have years of experience working with students as a school counselor and school therapist. My education includes a Master's degree in Psychology with a Marriage and Family emphasis, and a PPS Credential in School Counseling. I love building relationships, promoting resilience, encouraging a growth mindset, and helping others find solutions to life's challenges. I feel so fortunate to have this opportunity to support students as they develop socially, emotionally, and academically.  

I am a mom of two daughters, an 11 and 14-year-old, and one goofy rescue dog, an American Eskimo, and Corgi ("Corgimo") mix. I love going on walks, spending time at the beach, relaxing with my family, and traveling in my spare time.

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you! I can be reached at
