Hello Riverdale Family!

I am so proud to be joining the Riverdale High School Family as the Professional School Counselor for RHS Students with last names beginning with letters S-Z. I will also be serving as our Key Club Advisor, which is a student led club that teaches students skills in service and leadership. I am a graduate of Columbia State Community College and Lipscomb University, where I studied Education and School Counseling. In my time in education, I have spent time as a middle and high school teacher, and an elementary and middle school counselor. Please be sure to take some time to surf our Counseling Page Website to ensure you have all the information you need to be successful in your time here at Riverdale, and reach out if I may be of assistance to you at any time.
Best Wishes,
Jamie Casper
