Hello! My name is Ariesha Short and I am the Guidance Counselor at Petersburg Primary. This is my first year as a counselor and I am very happy to be a part of PPS. I live in Cheraw, SC and I attended public school in this district. I received my BA from Francis Marion University, and I'm currently working on my second Master's Degree.
As a Guidance Counselor, I teach guidance lessons in classrooms, conduct small group counseling sessions, counsel students individually as needed, and provide consultation for teachers and parents. This year I will teach classroom guidance that focuses on our monthly character traits. I look forward to a happy, healthy, and successful school year being an advocate for all students!
