This is my fourth year as part of the Pennbrook team. I previously worked in the Upper Darby School District as a middle school counselor for 5 years and in Philadelphia as a high school counselor for 6 years. I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Pittsburgh and my graduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania. I am excited to support our students and families through their middle school journey.

I am Mrs. Kadyszewski and I am so excited to be your school counselor for another school year. This is my 15th year in the North Penn School District. I previously was the elementary counselor at Gwyn-Nor Elementary School for nine years. I love Pennbrook and I love all of my students. I graduated from West Chester University, where I received my master's degree in Counseling & Educational Psychology. I am married and have two daughters & two dogs.
