Mitch Metcalf, Student Assistance Professional
I grew up in Marysville, Washington, where I lived until attending Western Washington University in 2011. At Western I studied Community Health, and Cultural Anthropology. I have been in Bellingham for 7 years now, and I love it! I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, and practicing yoga, as well as reading, watching tv, playing video games, and cooking/eating great food!
I am excited to join your staff as the Student Assistance Professional (formerly called Prevention / Intervention Specialist, or PI) at Concrete HS. My responsibilities will include offering individual and group counseling, implementing Project SUCCESS for staff and students, and leading the High School’s Prevention Club. I will be available to meet with students who are using alcohol or other drugs, or have personal, school or family issues that could lead to substance abuse. If you are worried about a student’s behavior or well-being and would like to speak with me, or have me meet with a student, please contact me in person, by phone or email. All information is confidential. Feel free to reach out with any questions you may have.
Aside from the occasional trainings and meetings, I will be onsite at Concrete HS every school day. My office is located in the back of the library.
