Hello! My name is Leslie Mahoney and I am so excited to begin my seventh year at Mountain View School as the School Counselor! I truly love the work that I do and feel privileged to have the opportunity to serve our students!

 

As the school counselor, I am here to support students, teachers, and parents. I provide services to promote students' academic success, personal/social development, and career development. These services include classroom guidance lessons, small groups, and individual meetings with students.

 

I want to ensure that every student at MVS has a successful school year. If there is anything that I could do to assist your child this school year, please contact me by email at lmahoney@mcminnschools.com or by calling the school at (423) 263-2498.
