Ms. Karla Holmes

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! As the school counselor at Ponderosa Elementary, I am excited to serve students, parents and staff this year. I have been a school counselor in the district since 1992, and this will be my 13th year at Ponderosa. Please check out my School Counselor Brochure on this webpage to learn more about what I can do to help students.

I enjoy music, reading, skiing, yoga, and BSU football. I have two children: one at Rocky Mountain High School and one attending Estrella Mountain Community College in Phoenix.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has previously worked as an Addictions Counselor/Drug Prevention Specialist. Some of my other areas of expertise include Autism Spectrum Disorders, Grief Counseling, and Love and Logic for parents and educators.
Please let me know if I can help your child be more successful here at Ponderosa! ( or 855-4042)
