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 2020-2021 school year, the counselors are as follows:


    Grade 5          Laura Ok

    Grade 6          Kate Maloney (Leave Replacement for Irene Petrsoric)


    Grade 7          Valerie Zaffers


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