Support Team 2021

Starting from the left, Mrs. Cindy Ilgenfritz is entering her 30th year as a school psychologist in the Allentown School District. When she isn’t helping students, staff and families in school, you can find her on an adventure with her husband and children or cheering on Penn State at Beaver Stadium.

 

Mrs. Stano (Previously Miss Gilbert) is our behavior specialist at Dodd and this is her 5th year in ASD! When Mrs. Stano is not working collaboratively with staff and students, she can be found hanging out with her husband (just married this summer!)  and her puppy, Sanders!

 

Miss Barth is jumping into ASD this year by splitting her time between Dodd and Roosevelt Elementary schools! Miss Barth will be at Dodd on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and she is extremely excited to begin her career with our Allentown students, staff and families! When not at school, Miss Barth enjoys outdoor adventures and spending time with her friends, family and animals!

 

Mrs. Wight rounds out our student services team as she enters her 10th year in education and 6th year here at Dodd! She is excited to be back in person this school year and can’t wait to support our community anyway she can. When she isn’t running around Dodd in her pink polos, Mrs. Wight can be found on an adventure or relaxing at home in Allentown with her wife,  2 year old daughter and black lab!

 

If you, your child or you family needs assistance or support, please reach out to our student support team to help you!

Dodd's school counseling program is a comprehensive service provided to students and their families.


Services for students include small group counseling and classroom lessons focused on topics such as safety, bullying prevention, career awareness, and conflict resolution.

If you feel that your child would benefit from outside counseling or support resources, your child’s counselor can refer you to an outside agency for support and/or refer to the school’s SAP team (Student Assistance Program).
