Counselor's Corner

Hello Brookhaven Community,

My name is Nicolas Pritchard and I am so excited to be the School Counselor for Brookhaven Elementary School! I love to make long lasting impactful relationships with my students and watch them develop into lifelong learners. I also love to spend quality time with my friends and family, and I love to be outdoors! I look forward to building relationships within my new Brookhaven community.
