Welcome to Middle School Counseling!

Middle School Guidance Counselor

Ms. Naw is originally from Myanmar and has worked as a guidance counselor at several international schools in Thailand and Switzerland for over ten years. She lives with her husband, Chris, and her three-year old son, Luke, and enjoys all the opportunities that Chiang Mai offers for outdoor experiences.

"As a guidance counselor, I believe that when students are helped on an individual basis, they improve significantly. This is because every child is unique. A positive and trusting counseling relationship is the key component in helping students reach their highest potential, and empowering them to face life’s challenges. The preventive, proactive, and remedial nature of counseling services, in collaboration with continuing support from parents, teachers and the community, will ensure the social-emotional wellbeing and academic success of students."
