Counseling

I realize that you may be struggling with the new and unprecedented ways in which students will attend school this upcoming year. As the School Counselor, I am here to support you in any way I  can.  Please know that I can assist students both in person and remotely with social, emotional, and academic concerns. While we may not physically be in school full time, I am accessible by email and phone, and can plan a time to discuss any concerns you may have. 




















Hello, I am Rick Breiten, the school counselor at Northvail Elementary School.  I have been the counselor here at Northvail since 2008.  Before becoming the counselor, I was a 4th and 5th grade teacher for 10 years at Rockaway Meadow Elementary School.  At Northvail, I am also the chairperson of the Intervention and Referral Services Committee, the Anti-bullying specialist and the coordinator for student’s 504 Plans.  I work closely with the staff, students, and families to create a safe environment where students can reach their full potential academically, socially and emotionally.  I feel privileged to have the opportunity  to work everyday at Northvail Elementary School. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with family, friends and attending my kids sporting events.
