Ms. Ashley Gilbert

Hello Thompson Tigers and Family!
 
I am the counselor for all students with last names M through Z.  I grew up and graduated from Batavia High School, so am very familiar with the Oswego area.  I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a bachelor's degree in psychology.  I then received my master's degree in school counseling and mental health counseling from Lewis University.
 
I started my career as a special education paraprofessional at a local high school, working there for two years.  I then worked for three years as a counselor/behavior specialist at an alternative school.  In 2019, I became a school counselor for Thompson Junior High.  Since starting the process to become a school counselor, I never realized how much I would love and value my position.  What I love most about being a counselor is helping my students become successful in all aspects of their lives and witnessing that success!  I am very excited to be at Thompson and I look forward to getting to know your child and family during your time here!
