Mrs. Denyel Effinger

Hello, welcome to my web page!!  Just wanted to introduce myself. I am the School Counselor for Kindergarten through 5th graders at Franklin Twp Elementary. I have been  at Franklin for ten years and I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your child.


As the School Counselor, I interact closely with students, families, teachers and staff, and community to help prepare our students to be successful lifelong learners.  My goal is to support the teachers, staff, and students in creating and nurturing a safe and positive learning environment.


I have the opportunity to work with your child in many different ways.  I work with students individually, in small groups, and in the classroom for lessons. Students may seek assistance at any time and are encouraged to do so. Parents may also contact the counselor with questions and/or concerns.  I look forward to working with you and your family.
