Plan wisely and think hard...I am here to help you in your decision-making. Your transcript will be viewed by prospective colleges, employers, etc so it is in your best interest to build a solid transcript. Homework and preparation is vital to your success here at CASHS. The decisions you make now will have a huge impact on your future. Think before you act...or before you decide not to act. Consider getting involved here at CASHS. We offer numerous extracurricular activities so I'm sure you can find something to add a little spark. Involvement outside of the classroom looks impressive to prospective colleges and employers.

When visiting, unless an emergency, please try to see me before or after school, during activitiy period or lunch, or during a study hall. It is important to be in class as much as possible.

Parents, if you would like to schedule a meeting with myself or teachers or have other questions or concerns, please contact me via the phone number above or by email. I will be happy to assist you with anything you need.
Having graduated from CASHS, I recognize the struggles for students in a building as large as this. After graduating from CASHS, I wanted, as many, to make the world a better place. I attended Shippensburg University, majoring in Psychology. After a few "mindless" jobs after graduation, I worked for Franklin County, Pa, first with the Drug & Alcohol Program followed by a then newly created department, Truancy Prevention. With the Truancy Prevention position, my passion for helping students began to unfold. After a few years, I decided to pursue my Master's of School Counseling degree at McDaniel College in Westminster, Md. After finishing my degree, I was employed in Waynesboro Area School District for five years as a counselor. A counselor opportunity opened up in CASD and I jumped at the chance to return "home". I came to CASD at the beginning of the 2004-2005 school year and worked as a school counselor at J. Frank Faust Junior High, now CAMS-North. With the addition and renovations to CASHS complete, I moved with the freshman class to our new building for the 2011-2012 school year. It continues to be a great experience and I hope that some of my enthusiasm will rub off on the students in our building.
