My name is Johora Paeda and I am the school counselor for Southern Elementary. I graduated with my Master’s in School Counseling from Northern Kentucky University in May of 2015 and received my Bachelor's in Psychology in 2012.
My role as a school counselor is to help all students at Southern become successful through different areas such as Academics, Social/Personal, and Career/College Readiness. I teach monthly guidance lessons such as bullying, friendship, respect, college and career, and conflict resolution. As part of the school counseling program, I also provide small group counseling that covers topics such as anger management, self-esteem, self-regulation, and divorce. My job is to help all students meet their needs so that they can succeed in school!
I am very excited to be part of your child's support team where we hope to make it a safe and enjoyable school year for everyone!
