Meet the School Counselor




I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I am Laura Dispenzere, the new Elementary Counselor for schools #3, #8, #9, and #10. I am very excited to be part of Belleville’s school community. I graduated from Caldwell University with my B.A. in Child Psychology. I then continued my education and received my M.A. in School Counseling. In addition, I am taking post-masters classes to become a Licensed Associate Counselor.


As the Elementary School Counselor, my involvement with the children takes place in several ways. I will provide individual and small group counseling. Additionally, I provide classroom lessons on various topics (i.e., friendship, bullying, social-skills & kindness). I have been making my way around the classrooms, introducing myself to the students, explaining my role as the School Counselor.  


I am available to meet with parents, when needed. Please feel free to contact me by phone (201)-744-6760 or e-mail I look forward to working with your children!
