Ms. Elwood

I’m Valerie Elwood and I am so excited to be the school counselor at Ivy Stockwell.  I've been a counselor in the Thompson School District for the past five years. Prior to that I was a counselor at a middle school in Southern California.  I spent many years as a classroom teacher in California as well. Kindergarten and 3rd grade were my favorite grades to teach. 


I live in Fort Collins and have two beautiful daughters ages 16 and 3.  My 16 year old is in 11th grade at Rocky and is learning to drive.  My 3 year old is rambunctious. Together they keep me on my toes!
