Welcome to Dove Elementary!
    My name is Ashley Golden, and I am your school counselor.  I have been a counselor in GCISD since the 2014/2015 school year, and I am extremely thankful to be a part of the Dove family!
    In my educational career, my 13 years of service include: 1 year in pre-kindergarten, 2 years in 1st grade, 7 years in 4th grade language arts and reading, and 3 years as a school counselor.  My chosen theories are behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy.
    My husband, Justin, and I have been married for 13 years, and we have been blessed with three beautiful children.  I grew up in the metroplex and pursued my bachelor's and master's degree at Tarleton State University.  
    As the counselor, I instruct guidance lessons to each class once a month.  Each month, we will focus on a specific character trait.  I also facilitate small groups for new students, stress management, anger management, and organizational groups.  I am available to counsel students on an individual basis, as well as meet with parents and teachers for specific needs.  
    Please feel free to call me or email me if you have a concern or would like to schedule an appointment!
