I realize that you may be struggling with the unprecedented ways in which students attend school this year. As the School Counselor, I am here to support you in any way I  can.  Please know that I can assist students both in person and remotely with social, emotional, and academic concerns. While we may not physically be in school full time, I am accessible by email and phone, and can plan a time to discuss any concerns you may have.

Meet the Counselor


My name is Denise Brewer.  I am the school counselor here at Knollwood Elementary School.  Before becoming a counselor, I was a Special Education Teacher at Lake Parsippany School.  I was a counselor in the Montville School District and an adjunct professor at William Paterson University.  In addition to being the counselor,  I am also the anti-bullying specialist. Chairperson for the Intervention and Referral Committee is part of my job as well.  

I am dedicated to assisting the students of Knollwood at reaching their highest potential socially, emotionally, and of course academically. I have been at Knollwood School for many years and feel lucky that I get to work with amazing students, families, and staff each day!

I love spending time with family and friends, listening to music, and being active outdoors!
