Ms. Sarah Lorden
I am excited to get to know all Lightridge students and families this year! The 2020-2021 school year will be my fifth year working as a School Counselor. Previously I have worked at River Bend Middle School and Manassas Park Elementary School.
I have a B.S. in Human Development from Binghamton University and a B.A. in English from Binghamton University. I also have a M.Ed. in School Counseling, specializing in secondary school counseling from Pennsylvania State University.
I was born and raised in New York before relocating to Virginia to begin my career as a School Counselor. In my free time I enjoy reading, going on long walks with my dog Luna, and spending time with my friends and family. I also love watching football to root for my Nittany Lions and Buffalo Bills!
As a school counselor, I will support students’ academic, social/emotional, and career development through classroom counseling lessons, small group counseling, and individual counseling. Additionally, as a Lightridge School Counselor I will assist students as they learn to become their best self, in school, at home, and in their community.
I look forward to partnering with families, teachers, staff and the community to help students reach their fullest potential! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to a wonderful year!
