Welcome Class of 2021 to South High! It is always a great day to be a COUGAR and I am so excited to begin learning about each of you and your individual interests, talents, and aspirations. We will begin our work together, very soon, as I will be conducting presentations within your classes during the upcoming weeks.

In the meantime, please feel free to contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the Counseling Center with any questions. Mrs. Goodrich
