Ms. Terrnisha James


Hello Holton family! My name is Terrnisha James and I am proud to serve as the school counselor at Holton. I earned my Master of Education in School Counseling from Liberty University and my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Phoenix. I am a member of the American School Counseling Association (ASCA), the Virginia School Counselor Association (VSCA), and Kappa Delta Phi, an international honor society in education. I have school counseling experience at both the elementary and high school levels.

As the school counselor, it is my job to meet the academic, personal/social, emotional, and career-related needs of all students. The developmental and preventative program implemented at Holton focuses on helping students to achieve academic and personal success through classroom lessons and activities, small groups, and individual student sessions.

In addition to offering support to students, I also work collaboratively with teachers, administrators, families, and community partners in making Holton a great place to learn!
