    Mrs. Kashara Rance - School Counselor


    Hello Bunche Family,

    As the full-time School Counselor, I am excited to put my education and experience into action in order to best service our children. I have a master's degree in Counseling and 10 years of experience working with children. I enjoy interacting with my students and building healthy relationships.My role is to focus on personal/ social, academic development, and college and career readiness. I will be working with the students one on one, in small groups, in large groups, and in the classroom setting. I am also actively promoting the district’s Expect Respect Campaign, in order to raise awareness and prevent bullying and foster positive relationships. Each month I will focus on a different character trait to teach our students through classroom guidance lessons. My goal is to help my students be as successful as possible, not only in school, but in life. For more information and resources please explore the websites listed below.I am thrilled to be a part of such a dynamic team and look forward to an exciting and engaging school year. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
