MS. ARRENDELL - 11TH GRADE & 12TH GRADE BILINGUAL
I’ve been a Bilingual Guidance Counselor at the High School for Health Careers and Sciences since 2003. I’m a former Bilingual Social Studies Teacher, Grade Advisor, and Bilingual Coordinator. Presently, I serve as a resource for families to ensure the social and emotional aspects of my students are being met. In addition, as the 12th grade guidance counselor I assist in supporting the senior students to graduate and work closely with the YABC program to ensure this. In 2016, I was awarded “Counselor of the year.”
For the past 18 years, I have been a member of the School Leadership Team. As a member, I collaborate with the administration and the rest of the school staff to initiate ideas to enhance the school culture. My educational background includes the certificate of advanced study as a school building leader and district administrator, along with a masters degree in School Psychology, Guidance Counselor, and Bilingual Education.
