Please welcome our new school counselor: Ms. Morgan Simon

Hello OEC Family!

My name is Morgan Simon and I will be the new school counselor at Overbrook Educational Center for the 2022-2023 school year! While this will be my first year as an official staff member at OEC, I am not new to the community. From fall 2016 to spring 2018 I interned at OEC under the greatest school counselor, Sharon Cohen!  I am beyond excited to rejoin OEC and continue Mrs. Cohen’s legacy. Working with students and witnessing their growth is something I truly love doing!
I grew up outside of Baltimore, Maryland and attended college at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina. Right after graduating from NC A&T, I moved to Philadelphia and started graduate school at University of Pennsylvania, Graduate School of Education. During my time in graduate school, I discovered my passion for supporting kids with their social and emotional growth in schools. After I finished my M.S.Ed. in Counseling and Mental Health Services, I then completed a graduate certificate program in Counselor Education at Widener University in Chester, Pennsylvania. Shortly after, I began my career as a school counselor in December 2018. Since then I have worked at Laboratory Charter School and Samuel  School in West Oak Lane.

I currently live in the Germantown neighborhood of Philly. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, shopping, taking walks outside, and doing Zumba!

If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to say hello, please feel free to email me:  Contact Ms. Simon

I look forward to getting to know you and your child in the upcoming school year

-Morgan Simon
