Ms. Scheel

Welcome to Ms. Scheel's
Counseling Corner!
Hello! I am the Counselor for the 7th grade class and 8th grade class (last name M-Z).
Please email me at, Message me on Schoology, or give me a call at 818-951-5552 with questions or concerns. Emails/Messages sent after 3:30 pm may not be answered until the next day. Emails/Messages sent on weekends/holidays may not be returned until the next school day. It is my pleasure to assist you in this journey through middle school! 

Students can expect to see me join and/or lead Zoom/Google/Schoology class meetings; monitor assignment completion and IGP's; contact individual students and families to discuss academics, grades, college/career goals, or social-emotional needs and provide support.
Students will receive their Individualized Graduation Plan (IGP) in their MyMail email account via an encrypted email. Ensure your child shares this information with you. If you have any questions or concerns related to the Individualized Graduation Plan, please contact me at

Thank you and be well.

Hathaway Sycamore Child Family Services
Are you interested in receiving Counseling/Therapy services for your child? We are pleased to have partnered with Hathaway here at Mt. Gleason. Having mental health services available in the school allows students who otherwise may not be able to access services due to transportation difficulties or time constraints on an already overwhelmed family schedule. Students can be referred by parents, school personnel, or they can be self referred. All students receiving services need to have parent/guardian permission to participate. Please contact me for more information.
