About Me

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Britany Bucci and I am happy to be continuing in my 12th year here at Hilldale. I received my Bachelors Degree in 2006 from Drew Univeristy in Psychology, and my Masters Degree in 2008 from Caldwell College in School Counseling. I also have a Post-Masters Degree from The College of New Jersey in Counseling. In addition to being Hilldale's School Counselor, I am a mom of two amazing little boys, Dominic and Santino. I will also be continuing with lunch groups and social skills groups throughout the school year. In addition to my position as school counselor, I am serving as Hilldale's Anti-Bullying Specialist and School Culture and Climate Committee Chair. The Montville Township School Website has links to provide you with the district's new Harrassment Intimidation and Bullying policies and procedures, as well as contact information should you need further assistance. During the first week of October, we will be celebrating each day with different lessons and activities that are all relative to the topic of "Respect." Thank you for visiting the site and learning more about the benefits of elementary school counseling. Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions/concerns regarding your child. Your feedback is always welcome as well. I look forward to a wonderful
