My name is Mrs. Shawndra Bird and I’m so excited to be your school counselor. I hope you all feel comfortable to reach out to me in any way so I can help you. I help students with the last names of S-Z.
Before being a School Counselor, I served in the U.S. Army as a Military Intelligence Analyst. My father was also an Army guy and, because of this, I was raised in Germany and many Army bases around the world. This experience has truly helped me to LOVE people and it’s fun to meet and experience new cultures. I also love to learn languages.
I completed my Master’s degree in 2008 at Northern Arizona University in Counseling/School Counseling and I’ve been working in the classroom or counseling ever since!
I have an amazing husband (who also works at CGUHS) and three (3) adorable kiddos. My daughter is a Marketing/CIS student at Arizona State University (ASU), my son is a rugby player and Pre-Med student at the University of Arizona (UArizona), and my other son is the cutest 2nd grader you have ever seen. I also have a very fluffy dog named Kona and two (2) turtles that we saved on the streets of San Diego.
I love to travel, but my favorite place to be is Carlsbad, California, where my family and I love to hang out on our days off! My other hobbies are swimming and eating chocolate. I can’t wait to talk to you!
