Ms. Robinson

Hello, my name is Amy Robinson and I have been the school counselor at Maxfield Elementary School for the last 14 years. I consider myself a lucky person to have a job where I get to support students to become their best selves!  I am passionate about teaching students to think critically about our world and develop skills to advocate for themselves and others as they pursue their dreams.  As a licensed school counselor in St. Paul, I work to empower students and families to access their premier Saint Paul Public Schools education through: 

  • Academic support. 
  • Social emotional support. 
  • College & career readiness 

This vision is accomplished through providing the following services: 

  • Classroom lessons 
  • Group counseling that supports growth in the following example area; emotion management, friendship skills, anxiety reducing, calming techniques, academic support etc. 
  • Brief, solution-focused individual counseling 
  • Parent consultations 
  • Teacher consultations 
  • Community resource referrals 

I earned my BA in education from the University of Northern Iowa and began my journey as a special education teacher and then went on to teach fifth grade at the International School of Dusseldorf, Germany When I returned from being overseas, I earned my masters in education specializing in school counseling from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls. After graduation, I became a school counselor at Highland Park Junior High in St. Paul for 3 years and have been at Maxfield for the last 14 years.  

In my free time, I love to be outdoors doing just about anything with family, friends or myself.  I love to go for walks, hikes, snowboard, kayak, snowshoe, or just sit outside when it is nice and read a book.
