My name is Kendral Sherman and I am an Atlanta native. I am married and have 2 teenage children who are in high school. I have over 20 years of experience in education as a School Counselor and teacher. My degrees are from Georgia State University (B.A), Clark-Atlanta University (M.Ed), and Nova Southeastern University (Ed.S). During my leisure time, I love reading and serving my community through my church and sorority. I believe that all children can learn, and it is my mission to make all students feel they have someone who cares and supports them in their school environment both academically and social-emotionally.
The Counseling program is an integral part of our students' school experience. The purpose of this site is to inform parents of the services available to assist students with their personal and academic needs.
Counseling Mission Statement
The mission of the Counseling Department is to build a comprehensive developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. Programs developed by the Counseling Department will be driven by the unique ethnic, cultural, and economic diversity of the entire student population with the end goal of removing barriers to student learning and encouraging achievement at the highest level for each student. Through a partnership with students, educators, parents, and the community, the Counseling Department will prepare students academically and socially to be productive members and leaders of society.
