11th and 12th Grade Counselor
Greetings, I am Cameron J. Cuttler, hailing from Raleigh-Durham North Carolina, where I grew up in a culturally diverse (Afro-Latino) family of six, where education was heavily influenced within the household. I had to play an instrument, as well as a sport, to keep myself busy and become well rounded. I was determined to not be a statistic and further my education beyond high school, despite facing setbacks and roadblocks. I started off at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University where I then transferred to the University of New Mexico earning my degree in Family Studies and Sociology. Throughout my college life, I was named one of the Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, and Pledged the Oldest, Boldest and Coldest Fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated. I did not want to stop at an undergraduate degree and pursued my Masters at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh PA. I earned my master’s in Professional School Counseling. What motivated me to become a counselor was to bridge the gap between social/emotional and education, because I grew up witnessing a lot of my peers dropping out of high school due to drugs, teen pregnancy, incarceration, and troubled home life. Overall, I have worked with youth to enhance their wellbeing and discover their full potential for the past 10 years and I hope to continue to work with children from all walks of life to further my goals to help build a body of learners for the future.
