Ms. Cave 2023

Ms. Carol Cave, Counselor

I am Ms. Cave, School Counselor at Westover Elementary School! I was born in Washington, DC and have lived in Maryland my entire life. My undergraduate degree is from Towson University and my Graduate degree is from UMD. I have worked for MCPS as a teacher and school counselor for over 25 years. This is my sixth year at Westover. I am a mother of 4 children, all now in their 20’s. I enjoy reading, walking, baking, traveling and spending lots of time outdoors, on my porch and in my yard with family and friends. There are several components that make up the role of the School Counselor. The 3 C’s: Consultation, Collaboration and Counseling. I am here to support students, their families and school staff. I see students individually, in small groups and teach whole classes. I work with all students in the areas of academic achievement, social/emotional development, and college/career awareness. My office at Westover is known as “The Beach!" I am available to caregivers via phone, email or in person. Please contact me via email, carol_e_cave@mcpsmd.org, or by calling the main office, 240-740-5740, if you have any concerns. I look forward to working with all of you this school year.
