Mrs. Penina Noonan
Hello! My name is Penina Noonan, I am the generalist counselor at Round Lake High School for students with the last names PATJ through SC. I have been a School Counselor for the high school since 2014-15 but worked with the Round Lake Community for two years prior to that. Prior to working at Round Lake, I served as a Student Services Specialist at the College of Lake County with TRiO Educational Talent Search. This was a great opportunity for me to build my resume with College and Career training, FAFSA expertise, developmental guidance lessons and the importance of Post-Secondary attainment. As a School Counselor, I have the opportunity to do that and so much more, including serving as a fierce advocate for the Undocumented student population at RLHS.
Outside of being a School Counselor, I am Daniel’s mommy and my husband and I are expecting our second child at the end of the 18-19 school year! Frank and I have been married since 2013. It is a very exciting (and very busy) time for our growing family. On a fun side, we are Harry Potter nerds, Disney fanatics and a Marvel family; and although we don’t get to the movies very often now-a-days we do enjoy the occasional family date night!
