Hello! My name is Pamela Sonmor-Wintz and I have been a School Counselor at Whitewater High School since 1996. I have a Master of Science Degree in Counseling and Guidance from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Education / Trumpet Performance from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. I became the Coordinator of School Counseling Services at Whitewater High School in 2004 and advisor to the National Honor Society in 2003. I organize many events at WHS including registration, testing, transition programs, and the coordination of the local and area scholarship competition. I’ve enjoyed helping hundreds of students pursue their dream of college admission over the years through academic advising, career exploration, post-secondary planning, and individual planning conferences with students and their parents. Through individual and small group counseling, I help young people overcome personal challenges, solve problems, build confidence and develop healthy relationships. I work very hard to help all students become responsible, self-motivated citizens who have the knowledge and skills they need to reach their potential and achieve happiness & success in life.
I love working at Whitewater High School for many reasons! We have an outstanding faculty, staff and administration who work together as a team to create the best educational opportunities for our student body. The computer technology and building facilities are exceptional and we are encouraged to pursue cutting edge programs that help students prepare for the world of work in the 21st Century. Another reason why I love Whitewater High School is because of the importance we place on relationships here. Everyone is important in our school and we value the uniqueness of each individual and their special talents. We try hard to help students set meaningful learning goals and always learn something positive from mistakes. My daughter went to school in Whitewater and attended Lincoln Elementary and Whitewater Middle School before graduating from Whitewater High School in 2008. We both agree that WHS is a great place to learn, prepare for an exciting future, and achieve your educational dreams!
