I’m Colleen Schell and I’ve been a counselor at Rome Corners since 2001.  Before that I taught at Oregon High School for 15 years. It is amazing to me how quickly time flies. Many of the students I see at RCI today are children of students I knew as a teacher at OHS. I love working with this age group, facilitating groups, meeting with kids individually, consulting with parents and teaching classroom guidance. In my free time I like being physically active, spending time with my family, and gardening.  Occasionally I read a book :)

Please let me know if you have concerns or questions about your child socially, emotionally or academically. I look forward to our partnership as we provide opportunities for our children’s’ continued success.

Michelle Kretschman

I am the district’s Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Coach for PreK-6th grade. Before entering this role, I served as a special education teacher for over 20 years in diversified settings. The focus of the SEL Coach is increasing the internal capacity of OSD educators to meet the academic and social/emotional needs of our learners through: partnering with OSD educators in creating personalized, responsive classroom and school environments, as well as facilitating multiple types of professional learning opportunities in alignment with our instructional vision, data-determined needs, and OSD values.

My focus is integrating social/emotional competencies into tier 1 instruction.  Areas of focus will be developed collaboratively with the administrators and student services staff with a goal of consistency across the buildings and social emotional wellness for all students with a whole child focus. I have deep roots within the OSD community and have two children who attend OSD schools.
