Firgrove Counselor's Page

Hello and Welcome Back!

 I hope that you and your family had a great summer vaction.  My name is Alicia Klinger, and I am thrilled to be the new school counselor at Firgrove Elementary School for the 2016-2017 school year.  During the month of September, I will be entering the classrooms and introducing myself, and what my role is as the School Counselor. 

First, I wanted to take a moment to tell you about me.  I am a native of Las Vegas and graduated from Bishop Gorman High School.  I attended UNLV, Go Rebels, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education.  I then obtained my Master’s Degree in School Counseling at the University of Phoenix.  I have coached high school and middle school volleyball for several years.  This will be my eleventh year working in education.  My free time is spent with my husband, my two children and our family dog.  I also love to play most sports and workout. 

 I am here to provide assistance to your child to help him/her:

  • -Develop a positive attitude toward school and learning

  • -Develop good relationships with peers, parents, teachers and siblings

  • -Improve their communication skills and develop effective decision-making strategies

  • -Deal with personal concerns, developmental tasks, school related problems, home concerns, health and physical development. 

Please feel free to contact me,

Alicia Klinger
