Meet the School Counselor!

Hello and welcome to my page!! My name is John Pereda, pronounced parade- eh. This is my first year as the Kingsland School Counselor, though it's my 15th year as a school counselor.  I live in Byron with my wife Dawn and my daughter Faith. I have three other kids, Grace, Christian, and Cecilia that are attending college or living their own life.  We have a dog named Jack, and two cats, Dark Shadow and Mollie.  I enjoy the outdoors, and you will probably find me camping, snowboarding, playing my drums or piano, fly-fishing, on the water, coaching, or climbing.  
I can help with social and emotional questions, career exploration, trades questions, college exploration, scholarship information, military exploration, graduation credit checks, and any other questions you may have regarding your Kingsland schools student.  I can be reached at or call my office at 507-346-7276 ext 5304 between the hours of 7:30am-3:30pm.
