Counseling Services are an integral part of Pine Lake. Our counselor, Tiffany Coscia has been a middle school counselor in New York since 2002. She is the counselor for grades 6-8 and received her Bachelors Degree in Sociology and Anthropology from Long Island University and her Masters of Education in School Counseling from Long Island University.
The Middle School Counseling program focuses on the academic, social &emotional, and career exploration needs of the students. Primarily, Mrs.Coscia sees students individually and in groups as issues arise. Some issues that she deals with are friendships, bullying, grades, and home life.
The staff is dedicated to student achievement and development. The Counseling Department provides academic and personal counseling services to both students and parents alike. All are invited to visit the counseling staff to discuss any concerns. Concerns may range from personal, family, educational, or crisis issues.
