Ms. Gaudette Introduction

My name is Natalie Gaudette and I am the Professional School Counselor for CMIT Academy North grades 9 – 12. I have been here at CMIT since 2016 and am excited for many more years to come! I grew up in Connecticut before moving to the area to attend the University of Maryland, College Park where I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Family Science. After completing a year of service as a City Year AmeriCorps member working at Kramer Middle School in Southeast DC, I returned to The Graduate School at the University of Maryland, College Park where I earned my Master’s of Education in School Counseling.

I am very passionate about post-secondary education access for all students. I truly believe that all students have the ability to succeed if given the resources and support to do so. As a Professional School Counselor, I strive to provide resources and opportunities that allow students to have the best chance to meet their academic, socioemotional, and postsecondary goals.

While I occasionally accept walk-in appointments when I am available, please understand that that is not always going to be a possibility. If you ever need to reach me, please feel free to call the main office (240-767-4080) or email me directly at ngaudette@cmitacademy.org. Email is my preferred mode of communication. I try to answer emails within 24 hours. Wishing everyone a great School Year! So excited to work with you all here at CMIT Academy North!

Bullying, Harassment, and Intimidation Prevention

Bullying, harassment, and intimidation have no place at CMIT. Whether it happens in the hallways, in the cafeteria, or online, such behavior can create hostile learning environments that interfere with students’ ability to strive academically, emotionally, and physically. Bullying is unwanted behavior that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated over time with the intent to cause harm. Bullying behavior may include: making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physical or verbally, and deliberately excluding someone from a group.

If you would like to report instances of bullying, harassment, or intimidation, please complete the Bullying, Harassment, or Intimidation Reporting form available electronically here or in hard copy in your Counselor’s office. Keep one copy and give the other to your counselor or an administrator so they can start an investigation. Meetings will be held with each involved party to discuss findings and develop a plan of support.

Student Service Learning Hours

Independent Student Service Learning Hours are a graduation requirement. Students must complete 24 service hours at qualifying organizations in order to graduate. Please see the Student Service Learning Hours tab under “Graduation Requirements” for more information about qualifying organizations, deadlines, and more information.

Maryland Minor Work Permit

Students do not get Work Permits from the high school. In order to apply for a work permit, students may go to the following link for online forms and more information: https://www.dllr.state.md.us/labor/wages/empm.shtml. Per the linked website, work permits are required for all minors under the age of 18 to work in Maryland. Work permits are not issues to anyone under the age of 14. Work permits are not issued to anyone under 18 until they have been offered a job and a new permit must be obtained if the minor changes jobs. Work permits are attained online with the student and their parent.

Maryland Driver’s Permits

Students interested in earning their Driver’s Permit in the state of Maryland should go to the following link for more information: http://www.mva.maryland.gov/drivers/rookie-driver/general-learners.htm. If the student is under the age of 16, they must provide a form called the DL-300 during their permit application process. This form gives information about attendance and verification of identity and must be submitted in a sealed, unopened envelope. The form must first be completed by the student and parent and then brought to the student’s School Counselor to complete. Students must provide their own envelope, however copies of the form can be found in the CMIT Lobby or downloaded here for your convenience.
