School Counselors

  • My name is Rosie Bracciodieta and I am your Kindergarten - 2nd Grade Elementary School Counselor at Midland (days 2 & 5), Milton (days 3 & 6), and Osborn (days 1 & 4) Schools.  I was raised in Westchester County and graduated from Long Island University with a Master’s Degree in Education in School Counseling, where I also became certified in New York State.  Prior to coming to Rye, I worked in Brooklyn with students in grades K-4.  


    My name is Julie DeSimone and I am the new Elementary School Counselor.  I will be working with students in grades 3 through 5 at Midland (days 3 & 6), Milton (days 1 & 40, and Osborn (days 2 & 5) Schools.  I completed my Master's Degree in School Counseling at Long Island University.  Prior to coming to Rye, I worked at West Haverstraw Elementary School with students in grades K-3, in Nanuet Middle School with students in grades 5-8, and at Playgartem Preschool with children ages 2 through 7.


    According to the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), "The elementary school years set the foundation for developing the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary for children to become healthy, competent, and confident learners."  We will work collaboratively to deliver a comprehensive school counseling program to best meet the academic and social-emotional needs of our elementary school students through classroom lessons, small group counseling, individual counseling, and check-ins.  We are happy to work together with families and faculty/staff to support the potential of every student as they develop the skills to become life-long learners who can thrive in a global environment as responsible, caring citizens who think critically, communicate effectively, collaborate, and creatively solve problems.  

    We are excited about working together and look forward to a great school year!
