Welcome to the Counseling Center!
I am Melissa Norman, part time school counselor at Jefferson. For the 2019-2020 school year, I'll primarily work with 1st and 3rd grades.
As a counselor, I will conduct bi-weekly guidance lessons, small group and individual counseling with students. We will focus on the academic, career and social/emotional development of our students. I'm eager to work with your children and am happy to help with any concerns!
I'm thrilled to be back at Jefferson after teaching 3rd and 4th grades here from 2004-2007! I spent 9 years as a classroom teacher and also have 11 years of experience in running Girl CHARGE, my social/emotional nonprofit that works to create safe social settings for children.
I'm a double Deac, having earned my BS in Education and Masters in Counseling. I love teaching and counseling and helping create cultures where everyone belongs.
