Welcome to SJHS School Counseling!

Greetings! My name is David Anater, and I am happy to introduce myself as the new school counselor at Saint Joseph High School. I am very excited, thankful, and blessed to have this job title, and to become a part of your child’s education at SJHS. I am the product of over 12 years of Catholic education, having attended both Catholic grade school and Catholic high school in my hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I received my undergraduate degree at the University of Pittsburgh, while I earned my Master of Education in School Counseling at Duquesne University. Upon the completion of my Masters program, I found a job as a middle school counselor at a public middle school in Pinellas County, Florida. While I have spent the past five years working in public education, I have always wanted to work in a Catholic school because I understand the importance and benefit of a Catholic education. It is honestly such a blessing to return to work at a school that feels more similar to what I grew up with, and what I would like for my own children in the future. I am eager to do the best job that I possibly can for your students. As I transition into a high school counseling position, I understand that postsecondary planning is of the utmost importance. I hope that I can demonstrate to you that I will do whatever is in my power to help your students achieve their postsecondary goals, and I am willing to work with your family to help with anything you may need in that aspect. I am excited to get to know your students. Thank you for taking the time to read this message. I look forward to either meeting you in person, communicating through email, or talking to you over the phone soon! Mr. David Anater danater@saintjosephhs.com 727-224-5552, ext. 112
