Ms. Stephanie Balfoort
Hello! My name is Stephanie Balfoort, a licensed School Counselor in both Michigan and New York. I am excited to be starting my second year as your K-5 counselor and 504 coordinator at Roberto Clemente. I recently moved to Michigan and am enjoying all that the Great Lakes State has to offer. In my free time I enjoy cooking, trying new restaurants and activities, reading, gardening, going on adventures, and participating in professional learning opportunities in the areas of school counseling and equity.
As your school counselor it is my job to serve our students in the areas of academic and social development, career exploration, and recently, distance learning support. I promise to be an advocate for your child and work collaboratively with parents, students, teachers/staff, administrators, and our community. I am passionate about meeting students where they are now and helping them develop into their best and most successful selves.
Email is the best way to reach me. If you are having concerns, questions regarding a 504, and/or would like to me to check in with your child you can email me or fill out a Parent/Guardian Referral Form on our Social Worker/Counselor Corner Channel on our Roberto Clemente Students and Staff page on Teams. I look forward to working alongside you this school year!
