High School Counselor
The mission of the high school counseling program is to enable ALL students, regardless of individual differences, to acquire the educational preparation, college and career readiness skills, and social awareness necessary to reach their highest potential in an ever-changing society.
Hello! My name is Regina Sirianni and I am the counselor for grades 10-12 at Sibley East High School. I look forward to working with all of the families from the Sibley East Community each year.
I am a graduate of Minnesota State University, Mankato, with a Master of Science in Professional School Counseling along with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology as well. This program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
The program has aligned the work with the American School Counseling Association’s (ASCA) National Model. The ASCA National Standards reflect the expectations for all students to achieve. Professional school counselors support students in three areas of their lives: academic, career, and personal/social. School counselors collaboratively work with all stakeholders in the
following delivery systems:
- School Counseling Curriculum – guidance lessons or activities to promote the knowledge, attitudes, and skills in three content areas: academic achievement, career development, and personal/social growth. The information is delivered via classroom guidance, group activities (intentional guidance), and parent workshops and instruction.
- Individual Student Planning – activities designed to assist students to establish personal goals and develop future plans, which include career exploration, interest inventories, and individual or small group advisement.
- Responsive Services – activities that meet each student’s immediate needs and concerns, such as consultation, individual and small group counseling, crisis counseling, referrals, and peer facilitation.
- System Support – activities that enhance the school counseling program and support the school. The activities include professional development, consultation and collaboration, and program management and operations.

How to Set Up a Meeting
The goal is to meet the needs of all students, personally and academically, in an empathetic, proactive, accessible and professional manner. While I always welcome the opportunity to meet with students, it is my intention to keep class disruptions to a minimum. For that reasons, students are asked to make appointments to see me whenever possible, rather than asking to be excused from class time. Students can request an appointment by sending an email to or stopping into the counseling office before school, after school, or during the lunch hour. Parents wishing to make appointments should contact me by email, preferred, or over the phone.
If it is an urgent matter, please do not hesitate to come to my office as needed.
School Counseling Intern
Hello everyone!! My name is Safije (pronouced Sophia) Ademi and I am the high school intern working with Ms. Sirianni. I am pursuing my graduate degree at Minnesota State University, Mankato. I am in my last year of my graduate degree so I will be interning with Sibley East High School until I graduate with my Masters degree.
