Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Randy Sodano, School Counselor

I am the very lucky man married to Eva, a fellow educator in ABSS.  We have two outstanding daughters: Mia, a 10th grader, and Randi, a 7th grader.  I am from Latrobe, PA and love all things Pittsburgh - my Pirates, Steelers, and Penguins.  I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids, exercising, home and auto improvements, and attending sporting events.  I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from West Virginia Wesleyan College, a master's degree in School Counseling from North Carolina A&T State University, and a post-master's certificate in Public School Leadership from Western Carolina University.
This year marks my 27th year in education (6th at Garrett) - all with ABSS schools.  I have worked in various capacities, including teaching, school counseling, and coaching, at BEJ, Southern Middle, Hillcrest, Sylvan, and A-O.  I feel very fortunate to be part of the Garrett Gator family.  As school counselor, my primary objective is to do what I can to help everyone have the best day they can; essentially, whatever I can do to help kids feel connected, capable, and cared for.
Let's make this a great 2021-22 school year, Gators!
