Staff Member of the Month - Ms. Robinson

 Please join us in congratulating Ms. Amy Robinson, Student Assistance Counselor, on being named Staff Member of the Month for February here at JTHS. Ms. Robinson is in her first year as the JTHS SAC, and she is doing a wonderful job. Prior to her position at the high school, Amy worked at Daytop and High Focus. Since arriving at JTHS, she has taken an active role working with the JT Municipal Alliance, Students Against Destructive Decisions, and providing support for our students' mental health and substance abuse needs.

Here's what the staff and students have to say about Ms. Robinson:

Amy works beautifully with her students individually and also meets with small groups to help students transition into our school community. 

For any teachers or staff members who have not yet met or worked with Amy, I think they will be very pleasantly surprised by her professionalism and warm disposition!!!

She makes students instantly feel comfortable and they trust her and open up about some very sensitive topics. Amy has taken the initiative to meet independently with students on a consistent basis and has implemented multiple counseling groups to address the needs of our students. 

Amy is willing to help in any way she can and always keeps a calm demeanor. I know I can rely on her and enjoy collaborating with her to provide services that better support our students. 

As our new SAC, Amy has jumped right into her position to make a difference with the student population. 

She puts a perspective that I don't see when I talk to her. When I talk to her, she asks questions that make me think. 

She listens to me and then proposes things to fix problems. She's good at helping me make lists of things to accomplish. 

Ms. Robinson is such a nice person. She's easy to talk to and that's so important for me.

Ms. Robinson will keep the Falcon statue for the month of March. If you haven't had a chance to meet her yet, stop down to the Counseling Department to say "hello" and congratulate her!
