Mrs. Angela Denow

Hello! My name is Angela Denow. I am the school counselor for all Cherokee Heights students. This is my first year as the full-time counselor at Cherokee, but my second year here in the building. 

I completed my undergraduate studies at University of Minnesota and my graduate studies at University of Wisconsin – River Falls. I enjoy reading, crafting, and spending time with my family, including my dog, Berkeley.
