Hi Solomon students and families! My name is Paula Mulholland and I am excited to be your new school counselor! I grew up in Westfield, New York, a small town near Lake Erie. I earned a bachelor’s degree in childhood studies from St. Bonaventure University and a master’s degree in school counseling from the University of Northern Colorado. I’ve been a school counselor for the past three years and an educator in various positions for the past nine years. Outside of school, I enjoy riding my bike along the lakefront, exploring Chicago, playing the ukulele, and cheering on the Chicago Cubs and the Buffalo Bills. I’m looking forward to a great school year and getting to know all of you!
