Meet the Counselor

    Welcome to Mrs. Surubaru's (Mrs. S's)  
    Teacher Page!



    I am the school counselor at Northern Elementary School. I'm very passionate about supporting students and their families. As a school counselor I am an advocate for all students. I work to promote and enhance student development in the areas of academics, career, and social/emotional skills.

    The school counseling program includes guidance lessons, individual meetings with students, and small groups built around social/emotional needs.  


     I believe that children do well if they can, and it is my mission to support in providing students with the resources they need to be successful in school and in the changing world.

    I began my career in the field of community mental health where I worked with children, teens, and families. I later chose to pursue a master’s degree and certification in school counseling to work with students K-12. I am a mother, a wife, and newer resident of Dillsburg. I enjoy art/painting, being outdoors, and spending time with my family.

    Feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance.
