• Ms. Sarah Kadis, Guidance Counselor

    Welcome to Starkweather! My name is Ms. Sarah Kadis and I have been the guidance counselor at Starkweather since 2004. Before coming to Starkweather I received my BA from Albright College. I then attended West Chester University where I received my M.Ed in Elementary School Counseling. It is my job to work with students and parents to help guide students’ academic, behavioral, and social growth. I love working with students to help them achieve their personal best in school!

    My role at Starkweather:
    I am an advocate for students. I speak to students individually. Students may either refer themselves or their teachers/and or parents may refer a student. My office is located in between the nurse’s office and the teacher’s mailroom.
