Mrs. Teresa Wilhelm-Cook, School Counselor

Mrs. Cook 
Welcome to the School Counseling department of Turkeyfoot Valley Area School District.
I am the School Counselor for Pre-K through 12th grade. I have been employed at Turkeyfoot since 2001. I began as the Music Teacher/Music Director. I graduated from Frostburg State in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education.  In 2008, I again graduated from Frostburg State University with a Master of Science Degree in Education in School Counseling. 
At that time I became the Elementary School Counselor, in addition to my duties as the Music Teacher/Music Director. 
In 2014, I took over the duties as the School Counselor for the entire School District.
I live in Meyersdale, where I grew up,  with my husband and family.  I have two grown children, and two grandchildren.
I love the atmosphere of the small school here at Turkeyfoot.  It is like that of a family.
I want the best for all the students and strive to make that happen to the best of my ability.
