Welcome!  My name is Teresa Gorgia and I am the school counselor at William Mason.  I am very excited to be a resource to you and your child as we work together to support their success. I am a face that your child will see daily, both in and out of the classroom.

At William Mason, my door is always open for our students. I provide ongoing support to help our students meet their academic and social goals.  I also counsel students individually, in small groups, and go into their classrooms to teach character education lessons. I am also the Intervention and Referral Resources and 504 Coordinator for William Mason. I also serve as the the Anti-bullying Specialist for our school.
As your school counselor, I encourage and appreciate parental participation as we are a team working together.  Please do not hesitate to contact me via email at lucia.gorgia@montville.net  or at 973-331-7100 x1615 with any questions, concerns, or to touch base regarding your child.  Communication between home and school is not only beneficial and important, but essential. 

A little bit about me.. 

I have a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Seton Hall and I also have a Masters in Social Work from Rutgers University.  I am also licensed as both a Clinical Social Worker and a School Social Worker.  I have extensive experience in individual, group, and family counseling.  I have also implemented social skills programs, behavior modification programs, and have served as a member of the School Crisis Response Team for Morris County. 
In my free time I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and playing with my two daugthers.   I also speak Italian and have traveled to Italy multiple times.

I look forward to a wonderful year!
