CHS welcomes Alicia Soper

CANAJOHARIE — New Canajoharie High School Guidance Counselor Alicia Soper interned in the district five years ago and always wanted to return.

This year, she got her wish.

Although she started her career in a different field, she eventually worked as a guidance counselor at Notre Dame High School for three years and Owen D. Young for one. Now, she’s excited at the opportunity to collaborate with students (and their families) to help plan the next step of their lives.

Soper grew-up in the Albany area and now lives in Dolgeville. She earned both her Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree (in School Counseling) from SUNY Oswego.

“I initially thought I would go into counseling for the community, but I liked the idea of working with kids and planning the future,” she said.

“I think it’s nice to see when students make the right connections about college or career choices. I also like when they get their acceptance letters so we can all share in their accomplishments.”

Soper says she enjoys working with students and their parents during the decision-making process and loves that she can do it in Canajoharie.

“I always wanted to work here because it’s a very positive place,” she said. “It’s just a wonderful district.”

In her free time Soper enjoys falconry.

Five facts:

Favorite movie: Trainspotting

Favorite food: Mediterranean

Favorite class in school: history

Favorite book: Catcher in the Rye

Favorite band: Dave Matthews Band
