Learn all about the ICAP and Meet the North High School Counseling Team: 

Hi! My name is Melisa Springsteen and I support students’ last names A-C, grades 9-12th. I’m All In for my ICAP because it allows our students to explore careers, college, financial aid, and so much more. They are able to connect what they are learning in high school and beyond. 

Hi! My name is Jessica Rodriguez and I support students’ last names D-H, grades 9-12th. I’m All In for my ICAP  because it can give students the tools they need to explore careers, plan for post-secondary, and more!

Hi! My name is Francine Ruybal and I support students’ last names I-M, grades 9-12th. I’m All In for my ICAP  because it helps students explore and create a plan for their future!

Hi! My name is Kathy Hoffman and I support students’ last names N-R, grades 9-12th. I’m All In for my ICAP  because having a plan is important!  I enjoy helping students explore and find their passion, develop their knowledge/skills and make a plan for their future.

Hi! My name is Joanna Wood  and I support students’ last names S-Z, grades 9-12th. I’m All In for my ICAP because because thinking about the future and exploring different possible plans are crucial parts of the learning experience! 

ICAP- What is your plan? ICAP lessons are the basic foundation for students in learning and planning their career passions and opportunities and are now a part of graduation requirements. 

At North, we use ICAP lessons and videos to support our students during and after high school career/college exploration and planning.
