Mr. Gavin Hogg
Hello! I am the school counselor at James Gettys Elementary. My career at Gettysburg Area School District began in 2013. Previous to coming to GASD, I worked with children and their families in the capacities of a Behavior Specialist Consultant, Case Manager and Psychotherapist at a psychiatric residential treatment center, and a middle school teacher in Baltimore. I love being a member of the James Gettys community and it's a privilege to work with your child(ren)!
My role as the school counselor is to ensure the academic, personal/social, and career development of all the students at James Gettys. I work closely with a variety of stakeholders to accomplish this, such as parents/guardians, teachers, specialists, administrators, service providers, and other community members. When I need to describe my job to children in the briefest way possible, I tell them that I'm a helper. I am passionate about helping- so please always feel free to reach out to me.
