Welcome to Mrs. Couch's Online Office!

Hello Riverdale Warriors!

 

I am so proud to be joining the Riverdale High School Family as the Professional School Counselor for students with last names beginning with letters A-E. I am a graduate of Lipscomb University, Middle Tennessee State University, and Union University.  I studied Psychology, School Counseling, and  Curriculum and Instruction at each school respectively. I am entering my fourteenth year in education and have spent time an elementary, middle and high 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,
Kasey Couch
