Your Counselors:

Mrs. Diana Ambrose  – School Counselor for Grades K-2 e-mail me (904) 547-3739 

Hello Mill Creek Academy families!  I am so happy to be joining you and to have this chance to share a little bit about me.  This is my 20th year as an Elementary School Counselor.  Before arriving to Mill Creek, I was at South Woods Elementary School for 9 yrs.  Prior to that position,  I was a School Counselor for 10 yrs at Wilkinson Elementary School in Clay County.  Outside of School Counseling,  I have had quite a mix of teaching experience.  On the Gulf Coast of FL I worked as a Humane Education Coordinator for a Humane Society animal shelter and taught children with special needs for many years.  I also had the thrill of being a teacher for 2 yrs. with the U.S. Peace Corps in Jamaica!  I was born and raised in Michigan, but have called Florida home for the past  24 years.  I started out on the Gulf Coast near Venice and have been in St. Augustine for the last 19yrs.  I am a twin!  My twin brother Lawrence lives out in San Diego, California.  I also have an older brother in Dallas and an older sister in Sarasota.  I love to read, garden, outdoor recreation and traveling around the world with my husband, Todd.  I believe in the goodness and strength of each child and love the opportunity I have in my job to empower students!  I am very much looking forward to meeting you and your children.
