My name is Wendy Buesing, and I am the School Counselor at East Dubuque High School and Junior High. I have now been in the East Dubuque area for four years and truly feel a part of the community. I worked in the social service field prior to coming to East Dubuque and also in private practice doing family and adolescent counseling. I understand the challenges that come with being a teenager, and I enjoy working with students through these challenges. I feel that a student’s education is so important no matter what they do when they graduate.
As the School Counselor, I serve the student population in the areas of academic advising, career counseling and post-high school planning, and social and emotional counseling. I follow the Developmental Model of School Counseling, which strives to meet every student’s needs across their years at East Dubuque High School and Junior High. Students are self-referred, referred by teachers, or parents can share concerns with me such as family stresses, grief and loss, etc. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
