Reunited and it "Cheers" so Good!
I have had the pleasure of knowing former Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader (1998-2003), Chato Waters, for over the past 10 years. Chato has been the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders Coordinator for the past 7 years. Congratulations and good luck to her and the 2009 squad with their upcoming season!! Read on and find out what this busy, talented, and smart young lady has been up to.
Chato Waters is a high school counselor. For nearly a decade, she has served the students of Clayton County Schools through counseling. Ms. Waters has counseled on the elementary and high school levels. She thoroughly enjoys all aspects of her career and finds it extremely rewarding to see her students grow academically and emotionally. Witnessing her students succeed and being a partner in their journeys to success is definitely one of the highlights of her life.
Chato was born in Jacksonville, FL and later moved to Delray Beach, FL. She attended Florida A & M University where she graduated in 3 years and received a BS in Psychology. She also attended Clark Atlanta University and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Master of Arts in School Counseling. She currently attends Capella University where she is pursing a doctorate degree in Psychology. While Chato has a passion for the arts, she was drawn to a career in education by her desire to continue the positive cycle that her own teachers and counselors began with her. Th e teachers and counselors that provided guidance for Chato continue to play a significant role in her life to date.
Chato’s future goals include completing her Ph D in Psychology and writing self-help books for young women and teens. Chato also intends to become a college professor. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Chato is also a former Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader (2 year line captain) and Jr Cheerleader coordinator. She currently serves as the coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders. In her spare, time Chato enjoys shopping, eating, making others laugh and giving advice.
