Jessica Whatley, School Counselor


Hello! I am currently the 6th and 8th grade counselor at the Monroe County Middle School. I am a native of Forsyth and a 2005 graduate of Mary Persons! Before becoming a school counselor, I was a math teacher at the former William Hubbard Middle School.  I truly take pride in being a BULLDOG and I enjoy sharing that excitement with my students and their families!

I will do my best to ensure that you have a successful school year at MCMS. #bulldogfam

“Bridging The Gap In The Middle” 


Monroe County Middle School


As the middle school counselor, I work with the teachers to provide every student the necessary knowledge and skills in three areas: Academic, Career, and Personal/Social. 



Students do better in school when parents/guardians are actively involved in their education. Please consider the following ideas to support your middle school child: 

* Make contact with your child's teachers at the beginning of the school year. You can make a phone call, write a note, send an email or schedule a conference. It is also helpful to share information that might help the teacher know your child better. 

* Whenever possible, attend conferences and parent functions throughout the year. Attending such meetings will provide parents/guardians the opportunity to know firsthand how your child is performing in class. It will also give you the chance to discuss academic strengths and weaknesses.

* Show continuous support for your middle school child by volunteering with the Monroe Middle 100. You may contact Mrs. Brandi Pye, our Parent Involvement Specialist, for more information about volunteer opportunities in the school. By showing interest in your child's education, you're also showing interest in him/her. This kind of support will encourage your child to achieve more in school.
