    Lincoln Counseling Office

    The counselors at Lincoln High School work with individual students and with groups to help them develop strategies for success in academics, and in considering their post-high school plans and future careers. Counselors challenge students to become aware of their individual strengths, to develop methods for dealing with difficulties, to set goals, to make choices and to consider consequences.

    Todd Bittle, Counselor, A-K

    photo Todd BittleMy name is Todd Bittle and I am excited to be joining the Counseling Team for the reopening of Lincoln High School. For the past two years, I have been serving the students of San Francisco Unified School District as the Head Counselor of Post-Secondary success. Even though I was working closely with 19 high schools in the city of San Francisco, I was mostly focused on program support.

    This role offers me the opportunity to combine my experience driving programming at the district level and the direct services I have offered students and families in both California and Washington for 14 years. I am excited to get to know and support the Lincoln community. As you get to know me, you will find someone whom is dedicated to supporting students, is a world traveler (hopeless wanderer) and never gives up on the hunt for freshly roasted coffee.

    Samantha Schuh, Counselor L-Z

    Hello! I am Sam Schuh, and I am so excited to join the Lincoln team as a school counselor! I grew up near Spokane, Washington before attending University of Washington and earning my Bachelors degree in Sociology. I worked in the King County Prosecutors Office as a legal assistant for several years before pursuing my Masters in School Counseling at Seattle University. For the last two years, I worked as a school counselor in Beaverton, Oregon and am thrilled to be back to the city I call home, doing the work that I love. I believe that the role of the school counselor is to promote wellness in the areas of academic success, social/emotional health, and post-secondary readiness as well as working to ensure schools work equitably for all students. Professionally, I'm passionate about healing and connection through group counseling, utilizing restorative practices, and advocating for student voice.
