Hello! I am the new counselor here at MMS & I am so happy to be a part of this great campus! Please know I am here to help our students, parents and teachers in any way I can, so don't hestitate to reach out to me via email or phone. I look forward to a tremendous year with our 6th graders!

MMS has a goal for every student to grow this year in many ways. Following up with this, I would like to implement #growthgoals. Each month I will pick a character trait that students can purposely focus on to help them grow as students.  I will make an announcement about what my “goal” is for the students and then any faculty member can share with me names of those students who have exhibited that trait. At the end of the month, I will send out the list of students who were recommended, and they will come down at the end of the day for an opportunity to put their handprint on our growth wall & take a picture in front of the wall. I will share pictures on my counselor page, our Instagram & Twitter account and will create a video to be seen during lunches.


The month of August/September I am focusing on being a FRIEND. We are all new to this school and a bit anxious with having 6 different classes. Students who have grown up here may not even have an old friend in a class and our new kids are worried about making friends. Let’s all try and be a good FRIEND to each other. Make a new friend as well! Our school will be a much happier place if we reach out to each other & make everyone feel welcome!

For the month of October, our #growthgoal is responsibility. Knowing and doing what is expected of you is being responsible. Examples your teachers may be looking for are: bringing your pencil to class, completing and turning in your homework & studying for tests. Other ways are getting to class on time, keeping up with your library book, and remembering to get quiet at lunch when an administrator is speaking.
Over the next couple of weeks, we will be watching and looking for those students who are doing a great job of being responsible so that they can be recognized on our Growth Wall.
Everyone is eligible for this recognition and the good news is it’s never too late to start being more responsible!

November’s #growthgoal is RESPECT.  Showing respect is something we SHOULD be doing every day here at MMS. How you treat others around you says a great deal about how you feel about yourself.  Your teachers will be watching in the classroom to see if you are: answering them kindly, using your manners, holding the door for others, not insisting you are always “first” and not talking while others are talking.  In the hallways and cafeteria you can walk and not push others, use polite language when you are talking to our cafeteria ladies & clean up your mess immediately without having to be asked.  Showing respect toward others is important because it creates that warm and friendly atmosphere we love at MMS! Let’s ALL work on showing others respect!

The #growthgoal for January is Leadership! Leadership comes in all sorts of models. Some leaders are loud and boisterous while others are quiet and reserved. Leadership is not a certain type of personality, but rather using whatever personality you have to influence others to do the right thing to achieve a goal. MMS believes we have many leaders and we want to see them over the next few weeks. Your teachers and administrators will be watching so make sure you are using the ability to lead your peers in the right direction!

February’s #growthgoal is Kindness. Kindness is the ability to place other’s needs before your own. It is strength because it is a vital trait of a compassionate school! When we are kind to one another, we create caring relationships. Here are some ways for you to show kindness: greet everyone with a smile, talk to someone you don’t know, ask that “shy” student what their favorite song is, tell someone you are thankful for them.  Your teachers and administrators will be watching this month to see if you are willing to be kind to those around you. The hardest people to be kind to are those who are unkind to you, but we are asking that you rise above and see what happens when you practice kindness. It is never too late to start!
