Rashonda Johnson, Counselor
Greetings from your counselor! I hope each of you had an exciting, yet relaxing summer vacation. My name is Rashonda Johnson and I am your school counselor. We will continue many of those Lake Ridge Longhorn traditions while exploring new learning in the areas of personal growth and career and college preparation to name a couple. I am excited to see some familiar face and many new faces.
First, I would like to take a moment to tell you a little about myself. I have worked in public education for twenty (20) years; fifteen (15) of those years as an elementary school counselor. I attended Lamar University in Beaumont, TX and Texas Southern University in Houston, TX, where I received a Bachelor's Degree and Master’s Degree in Education. My family and I moved from Katy, Texas to Grand Prairie in June 2016. My husband Kevin and I have four (4) children: Keaira (25), Bryan (21), Kevin, Jr. (21) and Morgan (14). We have a sweet baby grandchild; Bailee.
This year we will explore a variety of topics that promote learning opportunities in social emotional development, career goals and options, college preparedness and personal academic achievement. Lake Ridge Longhorns will continue to pursue Six Pillars of Character as our character education curriculum. My hope is to deliver a comprehensive guidance program to students at LRE that is both meaningful and relevant in today’s global society.
My role as a counselor is to provide a guidance curriculum, offer responsive and individual services as well as collaborative efforts that support students, parents and staff at Lake Ridge Elementary. Please use the link below if your student is in need of counseling services.
