Counselor Page

Hello! I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to another school year! I hope you enjoyed your summer and are ready to get back to work!

To give you a little bio, my name is Daniel Conner and I am entering my 4th year as the 7-12 counselor. I continue to reside in Warrensburg, MO with my beautiful wife Laurianne and I have two beautiful daughters: Bradley, who is 3 and will be attending Pre-K here at Sweet Springs! and Joey, who is 2 and a half . I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Central Missouri in 2006 and my Master's Degree in Counseling in 2013, also from the University of Central Missouri. In addition to being the counselor, I am also the District Test Coordinator, the A+ Coordinator, and will assist the varsity football team when time allows.  My passion to help students set and achieve their academic, personal/social, and career goals is what drives me and I look forward to helping your children take another step in achieving these goals.

As the year progresses, I will update this page accordingly. Important dates are as follows:

Seniors, believe me when I say this year will fly by! There is valuable information that I will provide you throughout the year. PLEASE come check your individual folder located in my office weekly to ensure you are keeping up to date. This is especially important for those wanting to go to college and/or a trade school as I will be placing scholarship applications in these folders.

For information regarding the A+ Program requirements, please click on the RESOURCES tab on the left. You will than see a link to the A+ Program. If you have any further questions/concerns, or would like to know the status of your student (s), please contact me.

Let's continue to have a GREAT year my fellow Hounds! I highly encourage you to support our student athletes. They have put in hours of hard work and I know will do well this year.
