Susan Whitehead, M.Ed.

School Counselor

Welcome back, everyone, to the 2022-2023 school year!

This is my sixth year with Guthrie Public Schools and third year as a school counselor here at the Guthrie Junior High School. Previously, I taught students Science and Social Studies at Guthrie Upper Elementary School. My ambition as school counselor is to help each student work to their potential and also to assist parents and teachers in achieving this goal. I feel that collaborative effort between the counselor, student, parents/guardians, administration and teachers is necessary for student success.

My degrees and certifications include: BA in Psychology, MEd in School Counseling, MEd School Leadership and teaching certifications in Mid-level Science and Social Studies, US History/Government/Economics (5-12), English and Journalism (5-12) and Psychology/Sociology (5-12).

I have two sons - both attend UCO. One is a sophomore, majoring in Journalism and the other is a senior, majoring in Computer Science.


The first step toward tolerance is respect, and the first step toward respect is knowledge.
