 Welcome to Benton Middle School!

My name is Mrs. Taija Harris and I am the school counselor for last names E-K. This is my second year at Benton. I previously worked at a middle school in Charles County Maryland, prior to that, I worked at a high school in Southeast DC. I love being a counselor and creating a safe space for all students to feel comfortable to share and be their true selves.

What do I do?
Individual sessions 
Small groups
Guidance lessons
Suicide Screenings
Support 504, Sped, Intervention, and ELL

Schedules (ooh so many schedules)
Parent Teacher Conferences
The list can go on and on so I'll just talk about what I am doing now.
