    Hongqiao Lower School
    My name is Melissa Berg, and I am the lower school counselor. I was raised and educated in the upper Midwest of the United States. I have a psychology degree from Luther College and a master’s degree in Professional School Counseling from Minnesota State University. I began my counseling career in Minnesota before heading to Seoul, South Korea. My time in Seoul instilled in me a passion for international education, and I have enjoyed continuing that work here in Shanghai. Counseling is an incredibly rewarding and exciting field and I especially enjoy working with elementary-aged students. The best part of my job is that I have the chance to get to know every student in the lower school. My door is always open, so parents, please feel free to drop in and introduce yourself. When I am not at work, chances are good that I am either playing with my adorable dog or exploring a new neighborhood of Shanghai.
