Student Counseling Department


Meet Mrs. Cady

My name is Eva Cady and I am the Elementary School Counselor here at Hamilton Elementary School. I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology from Mansfield University. I then moved east to attend The University of Scranton where I received my Masters Degree in Elementary School Counseling. This is my 18th year of service as a school counselor at Hamilton Elementary! I live in the Scranton Area and enjoy spending time with my husband and my two children. 

Being a school counselor is my passion and everyday I feel thankful to have the opportunity to work with your children at such an amazing school!

A few components of my school counseling program help lay the foundation while working closely with other faculty, parents, community and students. My role is to work with students to help them achieve their full potential in the areas of personal, academic, and social development. The knowledge gained in these areas at the elementary level creates a groundwork for future success. I work with students by classroom guidance lessons (Second Step Social Emotional Learning Program), small groups (special topics: grief, social skills, self-regulation, etc.), and students may also see me individually.  I also work with third and fourth grade students in our online career program, Smart Futures.  In this program, students begin building their career portfolio, which they will continue to build on throughout their time here at Stroudsburg Area School District.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me. Currently I can be reached by phone at 570-992-4960 or by email ECADY@SBURG.ORG.
