Ms. Marilyn Jackson

As a Professional School Counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, career, and social/emotional developmental of all students. I have acquired over twenty plus years of experience employed as a mental health professional and school counselor at the preschool, elementary, middle and high school levels. What I love most about the elementary level is the genuine curiosity students have in their learning and the world around them, as well as the opportunity for early intervention support that can have lifetime positive impact on a child. My counseling philosophy is student centered and solution focused. The Missouri Comprehensive School Counseling Program is the framework in the delivery of services: individual, small groups, classroom guidance, meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all Nance scholar students. If you need any assistance, please feel free to make contact with me. All the Best and remember our Kids are Under Construction. BE Safe, BE Strong, BE Health
