Ms. Shaw

Hello, I am Sarah W. Shaw, Comprehensive School Counselor (2024 Cohort).  Prior to becoming a School Counselor, I worked as a Special Education Behavior Teacher.  I decided to pursue a graduate degree in Counseling as it became apparent that most of my students experiencing behavioral issues really needed strategies in handling their issues, and not just punishment. 

I have worked as a School Counselor for the past four (4) years and truly enjoy working with our students.  I have worked primarily with high school students and really enjoy seeing our students excel and move towards the next level of their lives.  Whether our students choose college, military or the workforce, my hope is that all of our students live in their purpose and truly enjoy their chosen path.

I am truly excited to have the opportunity of working with our Thomas Jefferson seniors of 2024.
