Vision Statement: All students are empowered to be resilient problem solvers. They are leaders who take care of themselves and others.
Mission Statement: The mission of the Marana Unified Elementary School counseling program is to provide equitable access to data-informed services that help all students achieve their full potential.

We close achievement/opportunity gaps and deliver services that promote positive academic, career and social/emotional development.
About Our Counselors
At Roadrunner Elementary School, we are fortunate enough to have two counselors to work with students! This support is designed to help students with academic, behavioral and social/emotional skills in order to help our students become well rounded and successful at school.
Mrs. Lytle is new to the Roadrunner team this year. She recently earned her Master’s degree in School Counseling, and holds her Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Before school counseling, Mrs. Lytle was a first and second grade teacher in the Tucson area. When not on campus, she enjoys traveling when she can, and spending time outside and with her family.
Mrs. Lyons is our Title 1 Counselor and Behavioral Interventionist. She received her Master’s degree in Professional Counseling as well as a degree In Clinical Counseling from Ottawa University in 2003. Mrs. Lyons worked in the Phoenix area for several years as a Play Therapist before moving to Tucson where she worked at Marana Behavioral Health for two years. Mrs. Lyons joined the Roadrunner family in February 2016 and currently runs our Skills for Success program with students in all grade levels. Mrs. Lyons has two daughters who are currently in Marana School District.
