Welcome to School Counseling!!!
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Tyler Sigmon and I am the new School Counselor here at DSES! I am super excited to be a part of the Dudley Shoals Community! Here are some of the important things about me: I am married to my wife Ashley, and we have a little baby girl named Maggie. They are both awesome! We also have a little dog named Rufus. He is the man! I have a lot of different hobbies that I am interested in. I am a percussionist (I have been playing percussion since I was 14 years old). Star Wars rocks, and I consider myself a Gamer (though I don't have as much time to play video games as I used to!) I also like to Yo-Yo and play Disc Golf! (If you haven't tried either, I suggest you do so!) Also, I basically like anything to do with Sci-fi, Superheroes, or anything remotely related to these catagories!
