Counseling Office

The Counseling Program at Truman Middle School is dedicated to helping meet both the educational and emotional needs of our students. We believe that all children are unique, that all children are deserving of respect and dignity, and that all children deserve equal access to education. Our goal is to encourage growth and development in each student through the delivery of the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance Program.

This is my first year in the St. Joseph School District, and I am so happy to be here and get to know all of the students, families, and staff members at Truman!  I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in English/Secondary education and a Master of Education (with a concentration in Reading) from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. I began my career teaching high school English and Journalism at Southwest High School in Macon.  I moved to Kansas City and transitioned to teaching middle and high school special education, which I did for eleven years.  Wanting to work more closely with students, I decided to become a student again and earned a Master of Arts in School Counseling from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.  Having spent the last fourteen years in the North Kansas City School District, this is the beginning of my sixteenth year as a counselor, and I am looking forward to an amazing school year.
