MSE-Middle School Counselor's Corner

My name is Maranda R. Burns, Middle School Counselor for grades 6-8.  Having a combined total of 22 years of education, social services, and counseling, serving children and families is something I stand firm on and advocate for. I strive to address the needs of students academically and emotionally. It is important that I motivate, encourage, and inspire students to see beyond a book and what’s enclosed within four walls. All students have the potential to learn and be productive in life. MSE middle school counseling department operates within the four components: program management; foundations, accountability, and delivery of services. Each component requires the collaboration of students, parents, teachers, administration, and stakeholders.  As a counselor, I meet students where they are to assure students are college and career ready upon completing their secondary education and equipped to function in today’s society.


“Every child is capable of learning. Delivery plays the biggest role.”
