Dr. Chaja Pinkard
My name is Chaja Pinkard, and I am beyond excited to be entering my 12th year as a Professional School Counselor a member of the Cane Nation Family!!! My caseload, job duties, and responsibilities, include: students grades 10-12, last names L-Z, Ombudsman enrollment, as well as NAIA/NCAA/NJCAA eligibility assistance. Cartersville High School's Counseling Department also offers both individual and group services regarding academic, career, and personal/social assistance. I am a lifelong learner, and love researching ways to increase and advocate student success!
My wonderful husband, Dante Pinkard, is an educator who teaches Special Education for Rome City Schools at Greenwood Learning Center. We have two amazing children: Jailyn (8) who is a 2nd grader at Cartersville Primary School, and Jaise (3) who attends Berry College's Child Development Center.
