School Counselor

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Mrs. Chisman-Patton, and I am the new Pre-K-5 Elementary School Counselor. I am so excited to be part of the Mary Jackson Fundamental Elementary family. I have felt welcomed by all, and I’m lucky to be part of such a close-knit community.

As your school counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote academic, career, and social development for all students. I look forward to supporting the students, parents, community, and all stakeholders at Mary Jackson Fundamental School. I will meet with students individually, in small groups, and conduct classroom lessons. In addition, I will meet with parents, collaborate with classroom teachers and staff and consult with community organizations to benefit the needs of all students at Mary Jackson Fundamental Elementary.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you and building relationships with students to promote academic success throughout the school year.


Mrs. Chisman-Patton
