Ms. Melinda


I am Melinda Vaillant, the part-time School Counselor at RiverEast. This is my first year at RiverEast and I am excited to be partnering with staff, students, and families to create an inclusive and successful learning environment! This is my fifth year as a School Counselor but I have many years of experience in education, as I was a teacher prior to becoming a School Counselor. 

As a School Counselor, I work to support our scholars in three main areas: Social and Emotional Development, Career Exploration, and Academic Achievement. I will also work in collaboration with students to create and guide their Personal Learning Plans (PLPs).

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have!

My schedule is below:

Wednesday: 9:30-4:00

Friday: 9:30-4:00

* Alternating Tuesdays
