Meet Your Counselor
My name is Porscha Doyle, and I am excited to be your School Counselor! I am a native of Walterboro, South Carolina and a graduate of Colleton County High School. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of South Carolina, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a concentration in Education. I went on to pursue a Masters degree from South Carolina State University in Counselor Education. This school year is my seventh year as a School Counselor. I am eager, excited, and willing to rise to your student's needs.
I have done volunteer work at the University of South Carolina’s Child Development and Research Center, Hyatt Park Elementary, The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of the Midlands, and South Carolina’s State Department of Mental Health. Currently, I give back to the community as the Youth Director and a Sunday School teacher at Ridgewood Missionary Baptist Church. I am also a member of the Iota Omega Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Throughout my community, it has been my sole responsibility to get to know each child, show compassion to each child’s situation, and guide them to the resources they need to make their needed adjustments that will eventually lead to their positive change.
As the daughter of a retired educator of forty years and the mother of a ten year old, I have experienced the power that education and compassion can have when combined. I want to be in a position to counsel others with the same compassion that I show my daughter and that my mother has shown me. I hope to inspire children to further their education, even if they have obstacles that may block their paths. I persevered through my academic challenges to ultimately finish my undergraduate and graduate degrees, and I want children to know that they can do the same. Guiding children to utilize their resources can assist our youth with the challenges of the world today. An education, accompanied with school counseling, for several, is the path to accomplishing many goals.
