I'm Mrs. McMonagle.  I'm a School Counselor at Middle School East.  If your last name begins with the letters L-Z, I am your counselor.  I have worked at PV since 2002.  Did you know I taught German here for 13 years?  I began as a school counselor in 2015.  I love being a School Counselor and helping students.  I also love to travel, spend time with my family and two dogs, and work on anything creative.  Stop into counseling anytime.  East ROCKS!!

My name is Mr. Jackson and I am one of two counselors at Middle School East.  If your last name begins with A-K, I am your counselor.  I have been at Middle School East since 2016. I received a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Psychology from Millersville University and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling. at Eastern University.   While attending Millersville University, I was a member and Captain of the Men’s Track and Field Team.

I am currently the coach of the 8th-Grade Girls Basketball team and I have coached the 7th-Grade Football team.  I am currently an Assistant Coach for the Perkiomen Valley High School Track and Field team. In my free time, I enjoy working out, playing basketball and spending time with my friends and family.  One fun fact about me is that I am a triplet!  I would like to know more interesting things about you as well.  Please visit me at the counseling center and tell me more about yourself.

 Hello, Mr Rude here.  
I am one of two PVSD school social workers.  MI have an office at East  yet I also serve many other schools in the  district.  In my free time I enjoy being in the great outdoors in winter as well as in summer.  I like to ski, snowshoe, hike, and backpack.  Fun fact about me, I have visited 48 states in the USA.  Can you guess which states I have not visited yet?  Ask me about a state and I can tell you something from personal experience. 
I'm Mrs. Hildreth and I'm a counselor who works with both Middle School East and Middle School West.  I am mainly responsible for career activities and for counseling groups.  However, I am always available to help when you need.  I began as a school counselor at the high school in 2004.  I made the change to middle school counseling in 2009.  I love getting to know students and helping them with any need that arises.  Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my two kids and my cat.  I take my family on many adventures throughout the year.  Please come by anytime you need anything.
 Hi, I’m Mrs. DePalma! I’m the friendly face that greets you when you stop by the Counseling Center! I wear lots of hats at MSE- I do attendance, building administrative work, assist with student placement, coordinate the building state tests, and I am a strong member of the PBIS team. I enjoy coming to work everyday to see our wonderful students and staff! 

Outside of school, I enjoy exercising, traveling, healthy cooking and spending time with my family. Please reach out to me anytime! East ROCKS!
