I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Rita Arden and I joined iTech as the full time middle school counselor.

As the School Counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, personal, and social development of all students.  I look forward to offering support to the students, staff, families and community.  I will be meeting with students individually and in small groups, meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of the iTech students and families.

I spent my childhood in Vancouver and graduated from Hudson Bay with a “Best Athlete” award.  I spent most of my adult years in Las Vegas as a high school/middle school counselor and have returned to Vancouver to be with my family.  My hobbies are traveling and playing tennis.  Please call or email if you have any concerns about your student; I am here to help.
