Mrs. Melissa Schmitt

Hello!  My name is Melissa Schmitt and I am the 6th and 8th (L-Z) school counselor here at JJL.  This is my first 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.


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

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