Meet Your Counselors

  • My name is Deirdre Clayton and I am the newly hired 12 month school counselor here at Asa Philip Randolph Career Academies. Before coming to A. Philip Randolph, I was a school counselor at Jean Ribault Middle school. I attended Edward Waters College where I received my Bachelors Degree in Business Administration.  I received my Masters Degree in School Counseling from Webster University.

    I was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and have lived several places due to military family life. I consider Jacksonville my home. I have been a school counselor with DCPS for seven years. Prior to becoming a school counselor, I worked in the mental health field as therapist, and prior to becoming a therapist, I was a mortgage underwriter in the financial sector.  My first seven years in the district have been rewarding. I'm looking forward to work with the students and staff here at Asa Philip Randolph Career Academies. I am excited to be here!
