MEET OUR COUNSELORS
Hi there! My name is Ms. Kerry Salardino and I am River Gate’s new K-2 School Counselor. Prior to counseling, I had the pleasure of teaching for twelve years in Pre-K through 12th grades (my favorite subject to teach was Reading). I hold a B.A. in Physical Education from Kean University and a M.S. in Professional School Counseling from Angelo State University. This year, I am excited to serve, learn, and grow… the GATOR WAY!
I am the school counselor for grades 3-5. I have worked as a Professional School Counselor for nine years. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice from The University of South Carolina and a Master's in Mental Health Counseling degree from Webster University. I have a son who is currently a Fourth Grade student here at River Gate. I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends!
