Mrs. Melissa Schmitt

Hello!  My name is Melissa Schmitt and I am the 7th and 8th (L-Z) school counselor here at JJL.  This is my second year in this role.  I received my Bachelors Degree in Special Education from Illinois State University (2014) and my Masters Degree in School Counseling (2020) from Lewis University.  I co-taught at JJL for the past 7 years before making the switch to school counseling.  Here at JJL, we follow the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Comprehensive Model for school counseling.  We focus on meeting student needs in the areas of academics, career development, and social-emotional sectors. 


I am a sponsor for Builders Club this school year.  Information about this club is on our JJL webpage!


Please visit our JJL Counseling Corner website!


I can't wait to work with all families and students to make this the best school experience!
