WICKED GOOD MOMCAST | EPISODE 12

Utilizing Our School Counselors with Cheryl Mastrogiovanni 

Everyone likely knows that their child’s school has a school counselor, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we are utilizing this important tool. Today we are talking to Boston Moms writer, local children’s author and school counselor, Cheryl Mastrogiovanni. We will hear exactly how school counselors like Cheryl can support our students, and us as parents, and how the role may have evolved since we ourselves were in school. This is an important episode and we are glad you are tuning in!

About Our Guest 

CHERYL MASTROGIOVANNI is a native of Salem, MA, with just a slight Boston accent that remains from her childhood. She has been a high school counselor for over 20 years and enjoys helping her seniors navigate the college application process. A lifelong Boston Bruins fan, Cheryl began attending hockey games with her father in the original Boston Garden at the age of 8, a tradition she is now sharing with her son. Cheryl published a children’s picture book about (what else!) a child attending his first Bruins game. A graduate of Boston College, Cheryl is also passionate about soccer, travel, Cape Cod, and spending time with her family. As much as she loves to travel, she equally loves coming home. Cheryl resides in Arlington with her husband and son, who was born in 2014.

Shannon started following Boston Moms on social media before she even lived in the Boston area! She credits her passion for the brand to the way it served her personally before she ever contributed to it. Though Shannon moved to Boston to support her husband’s career, Boston Moms was the unexpected gift and opportunity she had no idea was waiting for her. Shannon is mom to Elizabeth (2016) and Anderson (2018). She has been married to her husband, Benjamin, since 2012. Benjamin is a filmmaker and owner of Boston production company Magnus Films. In her free time, Shannon enjoys going to the beach, browsing antique stores, hiking with her family, traveling, reading, and watching movies with her husband.
