Meri Edel - Vice President - Secondary Education
Hello, my name is Meri Edel. I'm happy to have been appointed to the ISCA Board as Secondary Level Vice President. I look forward to many opportunities to interact with school counselors across the state and be a part of strengthening our very important profession.
I will be starting my 7th year as a high school counselor at Marshalltown High School. I am a Marshalltown High School alum, so it's been great working in the district I grew up in! Prior to MHS, I was a middle school counselor for 12 years, and a high school Spanish teacher for 5. I hold both my undergrad and graduate degrees from UNI, and I am a Panther through and through!
Personally, my husband Chris and I just celebrated our 23rd anniversary. We keep busy with our son Alex, who is starting his junior year at Central College in Pella, and our daughter Leah who is going into her junior year at Marshalltown High School.I am very interested in supporting school counselors working at the secondary level. I am especially interested in opportunities to work with counselors new to the profession to offer any kind of help that I can. Please contact me with questions or suggestion!
