Hello! My name is Katie Franklin and I am pleased to introduce myself as a school counselor to the students and families of Dobson High.
I was born and raised in St. Charles, Missouri, near St. Louis, and just moved to Arizona. I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Elon University in Elon, North Carolina and worked in human resources, purchasing, and project management for several years. My decision to change career paths came when I realized my true passion in life is to make a difference by supporting and advocating for kids. My passion for kids started when I was young as I have 5 nephews and 3 nieces and have a close relationship with them. I love spending time with them whether it is on family vacations, holiday gatherings, or hanging out and sharing stories. Whenever our family is together, you can always find me with the kids!
In 2018, I moved to Bozeman, Montana to begin graduate school at Montana State University and in May 2020, I received my Master of Education in School Counseling. During graduate school, I worked as an academic advisor for an undergraduate department at MSU and I realized the invaluable role high school counselors play for students as they enter college. My favorite part of my job is creating relationships with students and their families to support them as they navigate their high school journey. I am passionate about empowering students and strive to make sure each student feels safe, heard, and supported at school. I am honored to be a part of the Dobson High team and am excited to support students as they reach their academic, personal, and career goals.
I look forward to hearing from you!
