Thank you for visiting our school counseling page! my name is Mrs. Eads and I am the school counselor for grades K-8. I am a lifelong Montanan with a background in mental health treatment and mental health services management and I love working with students at Deer lodge schools. I believe that all students have the right to a safe, secure, and growth-focused learning environment. When I am not working with students I can be found traveling, crafting, doing photography, reading, and hanging out with my family.

The best way to reach me are to email or call the school.
