8th Grade and 7th Grade (McGee, Sutton, Henderson's homerooms)

Hello, my name is Marisa Johnson and I am the lead counselor at Northwest Jackson IB Middle School.  I began my career as a Professional School Counselor in Jackson Public School District. I received my bachelor’s degree at Jackson State University and a Master’s degree at Mississippi College. My philosophical pedagogy of education is to teach the whole child, therefore, I work directly and indirectly with students to provide a comprehensive counseling program which will address all students’ personal, emotional, and social needs as well as ensuring their academic success.  I also collaborate with parents and the community to provide resources to enhance students’ achievement.  Counseling is not just my profession; it is my calling and I truly enjoy it!
