Hello! My name is Ashley Rignell and I am a Licensed School Counselor at Como Park Senior High School. I am the counselor for the Class of 2025.
I love working with high school students on their journey to adulthood. High school is such an exciting, but challenging time in life. I believe that EVERY student has something wonderful to contribute to this world, and my job is to help you discover what makes you amazing. I NEVER give up on my students. I believe in you.
I graduated from Winona State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a double minor in Spanish and Women's and Gender Studies. After graduating from Winona State, I moved to Chicago and completed a Master's Degree in Education (School Counseling) at Loyola University Chicago. I worked as a school counselor within Chicago Public Schools at a Military Academy for 6 years and gained valuable experience working with youth.
In 2015, I moved to Minnesota and worked for a year as a counselor at a charter school in Brooklyn Park. I was thrilled to be offered the position at Como Park Senior High School starting the 2016-2017 school year. I am determined to work tirelessly for my students to help develop the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to pursue your dreams!
When I am not working, I am spending time with my husband, daughter, dog, and two cats. We love camping and exploring.
