My name is Sam Restivo and I have been a School Counselor in the Jamestown Public School District for the past 23 years.  I grew up in Jamestown and attended Jamestown Public Schools and graduated from JHS as part of the Class of 1980.  I went away to school and upon my graduation from Florida State University, in 1985, I made my decision to return home to Jamestown.  I love this community and came to work for the Jamestown Public School District in 1996.  I started my career at Jefferson Middle School, supervised the Raymond Fashano Technical Academy before coming to Washington Middle School.  I always love to receive feedback from parents and students because we are always evaluating the counseling to see how we might improve our department.  Theresa Olson is the other counselor in the School Counseling Department and you can check her page for her information.

The counseling has a department secretary named

Ms.Tammy McCaslin
