Mrs. Karen Cavanaugh


My name is Karen Cavanaugh, and I am the counselor for Ford Elementary.  I am happy to be here, and it is going to be my 6th year at Ford as counselor.  I was counselor at Frost for 10 years before coming to Ford.  I also spent 4 years in Plano ISD as an elementary counselor.  I graduated from Tarleton State University with my bachelor's and masters degree in counseling.  In addition to being a counselor, I am also a wife and a mother of three wonderful GISD students.  My twin boys, Trey and Matt are sophomores at Georgetown High School, and my daughter, Lauren attends 8th grade at Benold.  My family keeps me busy with their extra curricular activities.  We love sports, and I am an Big Longhorn fan. 

Ford is a great school!  We are excited to have your child be here.  I look forward to serving Ford students and families.  Thank you for allowing me to help your children on their journey.

If you need assistance or have any questions, feel free to contact me.
