  “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.

What is Peer Helping?  

Peer Helping is a variety of supportive services initiated by peers of elementary, middle, and high school students in diverse settings.  Peer Helpers are young people who are trained and supervised by professionals who adhere to ethics and standards of The Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation.

Peer Helper students are taught a set of core skills that empower them to assist fellow students with emotional, societal, behavioral, and educational challenges they face in day-to-day life.  The 17-week course is an accredited elective for Middle and High School students.  If the course is not offered, Peer Helping can be a club as it is in Intermediate and Elementary schools.  The program covers several of the issues that affect our youth today such as:  bullying, parental divorce, body image, family sickness, grief and coping, and depression.
