Reyna Watson » Welcome



Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! My name is Reyna Watson and I am the school counselor for students in Pre-k through 2nd grade at Ridgeland Elementary School. It is an honor to have the opportunity to work with the students, families, staff, and other stakeholders.

Every day as a school counselor is a new adventure. Each day I look forward to going to work to help our students with academic, career, and social/emotional development.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email or give me a call.

I am optimistic about what this year holds.
