Welcome to the Jefferson Counseling Page
Jefferson counselors work to engage all students in support programs, services, activities, and opportunities to assist in their learning and academic success. We are here to support parents and students by discussing academics, social emotional learning, & college and career readiness. At JMS, students are assigned to a counselor by their last name during their tenure at the middle school. Below is a breakdown of the counselor’s caseloads.
Mrs. Navarro A – Hsu
Mr. Phuong Hu – O
Mrs. Flowers P – Z
The following are some of the services we provide to our students and families:
- Advocate and support student achievement by promoting student motivation, positive interaction, and educational choice
- Facilitating the transition between each grade level and educational placements
- Identify problems that impede learning
- Counsel students on career, high school planning, and post educational choices
- Facilitate student/parent/teacher conferences as needed
- Helping students develop good study habits and organization skills

- Referrals to outside agencies for family and student support
Students, can contact their counselor via email using their gmail account. We will contact you as soon as we can. If
