Hello, I am Karen Johnson, one of the lucky counselors at the best middle school in CCSD. This upcoming school year is my third year here at Bob Miller but my second year as a school counselor don’t let that trick you because I’ve been with CCSD as a Special Educator and School Counselor for over 20 years. When I’m not working or taking classes, I love spending time with my family, paddle boarding, traveling, gardening, and hanging out with my pups under the air condition.  Every school year is unique but this school is going to be amazing and filled with great new adventures.  If there is any way I can assist you or your family please feel free to contact me.
