“The Mission of Jackson Middle School is to serve as a positive environment for academic and personal development between the elementary and high school years. We believe that this mission extends to the total school environment.” Our students are at an age of transition and it is vital that our counseling program is well planned and implemented in a sequential manner. A productive counseling program is necessary to help students, teachers, and parents.
The yearly counseling schedule incorporates classroom guidance lessons, small group and individual counseling sessions, referrals to community resources, exposure to a variety of guest speakers, academic achievement strategies and career exploration counseling. I work with students in all aspects and strive to help them with personal, social, and academic issues. On a personal note, I work closely with our faculty and community members to help our students become well-rounded, confident individuals. The human factor is very important in our fast moving, technological world.
