It’s a great day to be a Junior Potter! This is my 20th year as a school counselor at Morton Junior High. My goal is to help every student succeed academically, socially, and personally through the middle years. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Masters In Education specializing in school counseling. I enjoy spending time with my family and exploring the great outdoors.
I joined the Morton Junior High staff in 2018 and am excited to be a part of the Potter family! After graduating from Augustana College, I moved to central IL to begin my career in education teaching social studies at the junior high level. While teaching, I earned a master's degree from St. Xavier University in teacher leadership and another in school counseling from Bradley University. I bring 11 years of previous junior high classroom experience to the school counseling role. My hope is to equip students with the skills they need to successfully navigate future challenges while empowering them to seize opportunities so that their full potential can be achieved.
