Welcome to Pinebrook Elementary! My name is Joyce Shanholtzer and I am one of the School Counselor's here at Pinebrook. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Sociology from James Madison University. I loved JMU and the Shenandoah Valley so much that I stayed for two more years and graduated with a Master's of Education degree in Counseling. I later attended George Mason University and I am certified to serve as a K-12 school counselor in Virginia.
Previously, I worked for Fairfax County Public Schools and taught preschool in Loudoun County for over 10 years. In addition to being at Pinebrook since it opened, I have been a School Counselor at Arcola and Leesburg elementary schools.
This year I will be the counselor for grades 2, 4, 5, and Ms. Klein's kindergarten classes. Please feel free to call or email me here at Pinebrook if you have any questions or concerns about your child! I am looking forward to meeting you and your child here at Pinebrook.
