Hello!  I am so excited to be back at NDA and serve as your Guidance Counselor!  I graduated from NDA many years ago and am thrilled to be back in the halls with wonderful students, faculty, and staff!I have taught Health and PE at Washington Local. I also have as a counselor at Ahern Middle School and Ayersville Jr. /Sr. High School.  I absolutely love working with students and am very passionate about helping students find success.  My wonderful husband and I have two little kiddos at home. You can find us spending most of our free time at the local park, with family and friends, or watching sports.

Here are some of Mrs. Shambarger’s favorite things:

Favorite saint: St Anthony is my favorite saint because he has helped me in SO MANY situations to find things I have lost! I always tell girls to pray to him when they come and ask “Did you find….?”
Favorite moment at NDA: May Crowning at NDA…I have a special devotion to Mary and it always brings me back to days when I attended NDA!
Qualities her favorite teacher possessed: interest in me, her guidance, her care and concern for me in my different situations I found myself in
Favorite activity outside NDA: I enjoy being with my grandchildren–talking to them and showing interest in them as little people with great potential
Favorite place in northwest Ohio: the metro parks and taking walks with my husband. I got engaged in Ottawa Park!
My teaching philosophy is to teach with the heart of Christ and to remind the girls their SOUL is just as important (if not more!) as the beauty they so carefully take care of on the outside! Work hard now and it will pay off in your future!

Here are some of Mrs. Smith favorite things!
My favorite saint is St. Therese of Lisieux (The Little Flower) because she was such a great example of living your every day life striving to be a saint. She once said, “The Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, or even at their difficulty, as at the love with which we do them.”
My favorite moment at NDA: Junior Retreat.
Qualities my favorite teacher possessed: My favorite teacher was very boisterous and funny. He kept class upbeat and was always doing crazy things which shocked all of his students. The qualities which made him my favorite teacher were his humor, positivity, and ability to challenge.
My favorite activity outside NDA is Cake Decorating, I love the artistic process of designing and creating cakes.
My favorite place in northwest Ohio is  The Toledo Art Museum!
My advice to girls at NDA is to get involved! Learn more about who you are, and who God is by involving yourself in Campus Ministry events, clubs, and activities.
