Hello! My name is Julie Redden and this is my sixth year as Northside Elementary's School Counselor and my 13th year in education.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of West Georgia, a Masters in Education in School Counseling from the University of West Alabama and will soon have my Specialist in School Counseling from UWA. I started my career in education at Purks Middle School teaching SEBD for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. I then became the director of Worldview Preschool and Childcare center. I took a small hiatus from education when I took a job as an investigator for the Department of Family and Children Services. I was very happy to jump back into the public school system when I accepted the job as school counselor here at Northside in 2012.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart Shane for almost 24 years and we have three beautiful children together. Nick is a senior at UGA (GO DAWGS!), Trey is an 11th grader at CHS, and Emily is a 10th grader at CHS. We also have a miniature schnauzer named Brady, a lab named Lola, and a shepherd mix named Kenna. I enjoy traveling and spending time with my friends and family and I love to read and watch movies. Going to a CHS football game is one of my favorite ways to kick off the weekend.
I am looking forward to this school year. We have many fun and exciting activities planned for you!
