Dear students, staff and families of Target Range School,

    Hi! My name is Ms. Clare Maguire.

     I am starting my second year as the K-4 School Counselor at Target Range. I am so excited to spend another year supporting the community at Target Range School and I am looking forward to working with students, staff and families in order to support everyone’s needs and help students achieve success in school.

    I am a Missoula, Montana native who has spent the last 13 years living in the Bay Area of California. I have two young children ages four and two and my husband is a huge San Francisco Giants fan making me one by default. J We love to spend our weekends exploring anything and everything outdoors in beautiful Montana.  I hold a B.A. in Communication Studies from The University of Montana and an M.A. in School Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy from California State University, Sonoma. I am also a certified yoga teacher.  I have worked in a variety of school settings as a Therapist and School Counselor and I am so happy to join the team at Target Range.

    My role at school will be to implement a comprehensive School Counseling Program including teaching classroom guidance lessons, facilitating small group counseling sessions and providing individual counseling when appropriate. I will support all school-wide efforts including the Montana Behavior Initiative (MBI) and the Green Team.  I will collaborate with teachers, administrators, staff and families to help students have a successful and safe elementary school experience.

    As a counselor, my hope is that EVERYONE sees me as a safe and approachable person who is easy to talk to. My goal is to help support our school on a system wide level.  Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns my office is located across from the 3rd grade classrooms.
