    Ms. Mary Sullivan

    I have been working with New Milford students since 2003. I have worked at both Elementary Schools as a 3rd Grade Teacher and as a School Counselor, and now I am a part of the counseling team at DEO Middle School. I enjoy getting to know the students, being an outlet for them, and working with them as they grow into themselves.
