Counselor Corner

Dear parents/guardians,
 
This will be my second year as the school counselor at Gideon! I can’t wait to welcome
your students back into the building. I’ve been a school counselor for three year in the
SDP. I’m so excited to work closely with your students and you to ensure all students
are supported academically and emotionally.
 
I am an advocate for your child’s social and emotional needs. I offer individual
counseling, group counseling, and classroom guidance for our students. I support
students in three domains: social/emotional, academic, and career. I help families
locate necessary resources, provide college/career education, address barriers to
attendance, help students in crisis, and so much more. For our 8th grade students, I
will be working directly with each student for the high school selection process.
 
If you have any questions/concerns, please reach out!! You can contact me a few
different ways. You may reach me at Gideon’s number (215) 400-7360, then follow the
prompt for school counselor. My Google Voice number is (484) 441-6689. I use this
number during school hours, 9am to 3:39pm, and respond as soon as possible. My
email is kschillaci@philasd.org. You can also send me messages on Class Dojo. I am
flexible so please reach out in the most convenient way for you.
 
I’m here to support a successful, enriching, and FUN school year at Gideon!!!
Respectfully,
Ms. Schillaci
