Theresa Niedosik

Guidance Counselor

For the past two decades, Theresa Niedosik has served as a much beloved school counselor at New Foundations Charter School in Philadelphia.

Holding a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Drexel University and a Masters of Education in School Guidance and Counseling from Widener University, Theresa’s well-rounded background makes her a great resource for our students and their families. Her infectious smile and radiant warmth made her easy to talk to and an invaluable resource for guiding and supporting students both emotionally and academically through their educational journeys.

During her leisure time, Theresa finds joy in baking, cooking, and taking long walks. Her family, friends, and pets — a dog and two Sphynx cats — hold a special place in her heart.
