Welcome to the Counselor's Corner!

I am Melissa Smith, and I am so excited to be the new counselor this year at BJH! Buffalo Junior High holds a special place in my heart as I was once a teacher here, and now I am back as a counselor. I graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor's degree in education and Sam Houston with a Master's degree in school counseling. I started teaching 5 years ago and have loved every minute working with students and helping them grow academically, socially, and professionally. I am ready to take on a new role of helping students grow this year!

As the new counselor, I want to be proactive in my approach to help students. Below is a list of services we will offer any student who would like to be assisted in these areas: 

-academic improvement and goal setting
-friendships
-group mediation
-stress
-divorce
-grief or loss
-crisis intervention

There are a number of ways students can visit with me. These options include: 

-self-referral
-request of the counselor
-parent referral
-teacher or staff referral
-administrative referral
-friend referral
