Welcome to our counseling corner! I'm Ms. Shonquita Horton, the dedicated school counselor here to guide and support our middle school students through their exciting and transformative journey. With over 10 years of experience working with young adolescents, I bring a wealth of knowledge, empathy, and enthusiasm to our school community. My approach to counseling is centered on building strong, trusting relationships with students, helping them navigate the complexities of middle school life. I believe in a holistic approach, focusing not only on academic achievements but also on social and emotional learning, ensuring that each student develops the skills they need to thrive both in and out of the classroom. Whether it's academic advising, career exploration, or personal development, I'm here to support our students' diverse needs. I'm deeply committed to creating an inclusive, safe, and nurturing environment where all students feel heard, respected, and empowered to achieve their full potential. Outside of school, I'm an avid reader and a serial DIYer. I look forward to partnering with you—students, parents, and teachers alike—to make these middle school years enriching, positive, and memorable.
