Meet Mrs. Oberdier - School Counselor

Hello!!! My name is Shirley (Sloan) Oberdier. This is my eighth year as the school counselor at Lake Elementary. I completed my undergraduate degree (in education) and master’s degree (in school counseling) at Kent State University (KSU). I am currently finishing my doctorate degree in Counseling and Human Development Services at KSU. I am here at Lake Elementary to support students in succeeding in school and life. If there is a particular struggle your child is having at school or at home, please contact me and I will do my best to work through the concern with them. If I cannot provide the necessary help, I will find an agency or individual who can. The best way to refer your child to me is to call (330-877-4276) or email ( me or your child’s teacher. If you are unsure whether or not I can help, ask me anyway.

Please keep in mind that the counseling relationship between students and their school counselor requires an atmosphere of trust and confidence. Students are informed that what they say to me stays with me, unless: 1) someone is being hurt, 2) someone wants to hurt someone, or 3) someone is hurting themselves. I encourage students to have open communication with their parents. However, they know I will not repeat what they say unless they give me permission to do so. If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to call or email me.
