About Me

Anissa Rago, M.Ed.
School Counselor
Welcome! :)
My name is Anissa Rago and I am excited to be the school counselor for Horace Mann Elementary School!
A little about myself - I grew up in North Bergen, and graduated from North Bergen High School in 2014.
This is my home, and I am proud to be home serving students and families in my community!
In 2018, I graduated from East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a concentration in Counseling, a double minor in Sociology/Women & Gender Studies, and a certification in Crisis Intervention. I then received my Master of Education degree in School Counseling from Lehigh University in 2020.
This is my 3rd year as a School Counselor and my 1st year in the North Bergen School District.
My primary goal as your child's school counselor is to support their academic, social, and emotional growth. I look forward to getting to know your child and being a resource for your family throughout their elementary school years.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have questions, concerns, or if you need to chat about your child's well-being.
