​Welcome to the MCE's Counselor's Page

Freda Ihediwa


Hello Gators! My name is Freda Ihediwa (E-hay-de-wa), and I am the school counselor at Mayde Creek Elementary.  For the past 15 years, I have taught reading, writing, and/or math within grades 2nd-5th as a general or special education teacher.  I have a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Film & Video Studies from the University of Oklahoma, Master of Business Administration in Media Management from Metropolitan College of New York, and a Master of Science in Education from Brooklyn College.  I received my School Counseling Certification from Sam Houston State University.  I am also a Certified Trauma Practitioner.

My self-care time includes reading, watching movies and/or documentaries, listening to music, bike riding, taking in the beauty of nature, and traveling. I also enjoy spontaneous dancing with my husband of 16 years and two teenagers!

My Role as Your School Counselor

My heart is to build meaningful relationships with YOU-- students, parents, teachers, other staff members, and the community.  By providing impactful social emotional learning, I hope to assist students with obtaining academic success and career readiness.


I look forward to delivering and facilitating engaging classroom guidance lessons as well as individual and small group counseling.  In addition, I will provide referrals to community resources and services and collaborate with parents and staff to develop strategies that foster the emotional and academic growth of students.

Contact Information

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will respond to emails as soon as possible or the next business day. Phone messages will be addressed within 24 hours or the next business day.
