My name is Miss Justine Smuro and I am the elementary school counselor at Purchase Line School District. I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2010 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (K-6). I continued on to earn a Master's Degree in School Counseling in 2013.
This is my seventh year working as a school counselor at Purchase Line Elementary School. Previously, I spent two years as a substitute teacher in the district.
I believe that in order for students to be successful in school, they must establish positive emotional health and wellness. As a school counselor, it is my goal to support students with their social and emotional needs as well as their overall well-being and happiness.
My interests outside of school include reading, shopping, camping, being outdoors, and spending time with my family, friends and my two cats, Ammo and Karma.

As a school counselor, I believe that three keys for school success are:
1. Set academic and personal goals for yourself.
2. Be kind to yourself and others.
3. Believe in yourself.
