Carol Whipple retired from Arcadia
Unified School District in June 2002. She and
her husband, Rick, live on Balboa Island in California.
They enjoy spending time with their children and 8
grandchildren when they are not realizing their dreams
of seeing the world. Stories from their travels and
Carol’s experience as an elementary school counselor
make her the “perfect” grandmother!
In the mid 1980's Carol developed an Elementary Counseling
Program that grew to include all six elementary schools
in Arcadia. In addition to providing one-on-one counseling
for children, the program included parent and teacher
workshop, class lessons for all grades, and referral
services. Children were welcome to walk into the counseling
offices at any time just to talk. They could set up
their own appointments to talk to Carol or the other
counselors. Parents and teachers referred individual
students or small groups who needed time to talk with
a caring adult.
Parents and teachers were always welcome to discuss
concerns, and Carol could always empower them with
ideas, resources, and referrals.
Leadership 2020 is honored to have Carol’s
expertise “only a click or a phone call away.”
As an Associate she would love to work with parents,
teachers, and administrators who might benefit from
