Ms. Deirdre McNairy
My name is Deirdre McNairy and I have worked at Southeast Middle School since 2010. I am a fulltime counselor. Counselors work with students to help them develop socially, emotionally, academically and personally. When students are upset it is difficult for them to focus fully on their academic growth.
Students see me when their feelings and thoughts become overwhelming. I talk with students to help them get a clearer perspective of the issues that distract them and we discuss how best to move forward and make good decisions. I enjoy working with middle school students because this is the middle of their K-12 education and it is such a pivotal time in their lives. Making good decisions is vital to middle school and essential to becoming a successful, productive adult.
I have one lovely daughter and we adopted two energetic cats who are brothers. I enjoy working in the Southeast Community because the people are so sincere and caring. In my time away from school, I enjoy reading, walking and spending time with my daughter and friends.
