About Ms. Curfman
I am thrilled to be a part of the GES family as the school counselor! I am coming from Goochland Middle School, where I was teaching Social Studies for 7 years and was the 8th grade counselor during the 2014-2015 school year.
I believe that school counselors play a vital role in our schools. I am here to support all students, faculty & staff, and families. I focus on the academic, career, social, and personal well-being of each student, helping them to reach their full potential.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.
