Meet Mrs. Carreras

My name is Rita Carreras and I am so excited to continue my career as NKES' school counselor!

My approach as a school counselor is proactive and preventative. My goal is to be able to teach students the skills they need in order to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally in their lives inside and outside of school. It is very important for you to know that ALL students here at NKES have access to the services I provide.

I was born and raised in Mechanicsville, VA. I attended Virginia Tech for my undergraduate years were I graduated with Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I then attended VCU for graduate school where I graduated in May of 2007 with a Master of Education in School Counseling. I was fortunate to then begin my career here at NKES and have been here ever since!
