My name is Jeannie Maddox and I have been an elementary School Counselor for 30 years. This coming school year I am excited to be making the move to middle school. My undergraduate degree is from Florida State University and my Masters of Education in School Counseling is from Stetson University. I have worked as a School Counselor intern supervisor and taught school counseling graduate students at my local university. I am member of the American School Counselors Association, a board member, legislative team member, and Co-Chair of the Professional Recognition Committee for the Florida School Counselor Association, and the president of the Volusia School Counselor Association. I am the founder and organizer of the Westside PLC group where School Counselors in our district have a chance to come together monthly to support one another and share ideas. I love listening to and talking with children, teachers, and parents. I enjoy working with students one on one, teaching them in the classroom, and watching them get excited about the new skills they have learned. I am excited about the new skills I am learning involving technology and ideas shared from other School Counselors and the opportunity to share them in this blog.
