Meet Ms. Torp


My name is Maria "Keny" Pereda-Torp, Ms. Torp your school counselor. I have been a school counselor for 7 years and I have enjoyed every minute of it! 
I am originally from Chile, South America and have lived in Boise for the last 27 years. After 10 years of running a Montessori preschool, I went back to school and I received my Master Degree in Counseling from BSU in 2012. 
I enjoy spending time with friends, my two wonderful daughters and our busy dogs "Lucky" and "Kali". I love my job working as a counselor helping children and families.
As a school Counselor, I support our students in important areas such as academics, career readiness and above all in their social-emotional learning. This year I am planning on running small groups for those students referred by parents and/or teachers. 
Please visit my Virtual Office to see fun activiies you can do at home with your child or to get some more information about Pepper Ridge Counseling Program.
