Who We Are


The POBMS Guidance Department consists of four counselors.  Each counselor has a different grade.  As counselors, we loop with our students. This means that we stay with our students for all four years.  Looping helps us to build a stronger relationship with our students, since we have four years to get to know one another.


For the 2014-2015 school year, the counselors are as follows:


Grade 5           Valerie Zaffers

Grade 6           Erica Gray 


Grade 7           Laura Ok 


Grade 8           Irene Petrsoric
We look forward to working with you.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns (516)434-3319
