Hello Longden Tigers! My name is Mr. Danny Ramirez and I am excited to be a part of the elementary school counseling team at Longden Elementary School! I graduated from the University of Southern California (USC) with a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Sociology. In 2008, I received a M.S. degree from California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) in Counseling with an emphasis in School Counseling & Leadership, as well as a PPS credential authorizing me to work in the Kindergarten through 12th grade setting. I also hold a Child, Welfare & Attendance credential. The 2020-2021 school year will be my fourteenth year working as a School Counselor and second year at Longden. I am very excited to continue to work with so many amazing Tigers! I am passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of elementary students and help facilitate their social/emotional, and academic success. Go Tigers!
