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 8th 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 bachelors 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 Seniors at Georgetown High School, and my daughter, Lauren is a Sophomore. My family keeps me busy with their extra curricular activities. We love sports, and I am a Big Longhorn fan.
Core Essentials is a part of the curriculum used in my guidance classes.
Guidance also includes topics monthly that include: good/touch bad touch (K-2), digital safety, anti- bullying lessons, manners, social emotional learning(anger strategies), conflict resolution, and so much more.
