SHS Welcomes Counseling Intern
This semester, Shorewood High School is happy to have Tres Mansfield joining their office as a counseling intern. Tres is in the masters program at Mount Mary, and just completed the first semester of his practicum at SIS. Feel free to read more about him below:
New to the Shorewood High School Student Support Office for the spring semester is Mr. Tres Mansfield, school counseling intern from UW-Milwaukee. Originally from Florida, Tres moved to Wisconsin in high school, and graduated from Homestead High School in Mequon. Tres began his involvement in the District in 2010 as a student mentor, started an Ultimate Frisbee program through the Shorewood Rec. Department, and also worked as an instructional aide at Atwater Elementary during the 2013-2014 school year.
"Tres seems to be up for anything. He wants to get the full experience and he isn't shy about trying new things, "said SHS school counselor, Sarah Johansson. "I am looking forward to having another person to help in Student Support Services, and another adult kids can get to know and seek support from. It will be nice to share my experiences with someone entering the field."
Tres has a BA in Psychology, and will obtain his MS in August. He completed his fall practicum this past semester at Shorewood Intermediate School, where he worked alongside school counselor Julie Wells.
"Tres has been a wonderful addition to the Student Support Team at SIS. He has made significant growth with his counseling skills this semester," said Wells. "We will miss him during lunch. Students have connected with him and are excited he will be back for Session 2 of Winter Experience. I'm excited for him to move to our high school and work with our counselors."
Tres was able to get some testing experience at SIS, which is something both SHS counselors are hopeful that he can help out with at the high school level. In his free time, Tres enjoys snowboarding, longboarding, Ultimate Frisbee, disc golf, traveling, and watching Netflix.
