Hello! I’m Chelsey Jones, the School Counselor at McDonald Elementary. I serve McDonald on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I am also placed at Mosheim Elementary on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I received my undergraduate degree in Child Psychology at East Tennessee State University and completed my master's degree in School Counseling at Carson Newman University.
I have been a school counselor in elementary, middle and high school. Since I have experienced all age groups, it is safe to say that I feel like working with elementary students is my calling in life. In our counseling program I focus on both college and career counseling, with an emphasis on social and emotional counseling. I believe it is of great importance to meet students where they are and encourage them to grow and flourish from a young age.
