Last Names M-Z
Hello everyone. This is my 13th year at Santa Maria High School. I am looking forward to an exciting and valuable year of learning at SMHS!
I have a Bachelors and Master’s degree in School Social Work from the University of West Georgia and an Education Specialist degree in School Counseling from the University of West Georgia.
My previous work experience includes: 6 ½ years as a School Social Worker assisting families by providing parenting programs to parents and linking them with necessary resources in the community in order to help ensure that their children will prosper and thrive in school, at home, and in the community. Transitioned to School Counseling and have worked at both the middle school and high school levels for the past 20 ½ years in this role. As a school counselor, I help prepare students to be college and career ready so that when they graduate from high school they have a plan, a purpose, and a direction needed to pursue the next goal for their life.
I enjoy working at SMHS because we have amazing students who I get to help prepare for their future. I’m personally fulfilled and grateful by knowing I get to teach students, on daily basis, how to strive for and meet their academic, personal and emotional needs.
I am looking forward to meeting you all. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
