Counselors' Corner


Welcome to the Counselors' Corner at Lee County Middle School West. We have two full time counselors. Our counseling department offers a comprehensive guidance program. We work closely with students, parents, and other personnel. We strive to promote a positive educational atmosphere. We provide the following services: individual counseling, group counseling (i.e. organization, anger, social skills, self esteem), and classroom guidance. We often sit in on parent-teacher conferences and are available to parents.

I am the 7th grade (Team Force) and 8th grade (Team Neon, Team Impact, and Team Inferno) counselor. I am a graduate of Albany State University, where I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology, Master's Degree in School Counseling Education, and Education Specialist Degree in Administrative Leadership. I am married to Jackie, and we have a daughter, Lyncoln. She attends school in Lee County. My hobbies include watching Lyncoln play soccer and do gymnastics. I also enjoy traveling and shopping. I am excited about our school year and look forward to getting to know all of you. Feel free to contact me if you or your student needs assistance.
