Ms. Wilson

My name is Lekesha Terrice Wilson and I am your School Counselor at the Moreland Road Elementary School. 

I’m originally from Albany, GA where I attended Dougherty County Schools.  I graduated from Monroe Comprehensive High School in 2001 and began my college career that year.  I graduated from Darton State College in 2003 with an Associate’s Degree in Psychology.  I furthered my college level by receiving my Bachelor’s also in psychology in 2006 at Fort Valley State University.  I completed my college education in 2010 receiving my Master’s in School Counseling at Albany State University. 

Prior to this position I started my school counseling career in Hancock County, GA and worked in their elementary school level for 4 years. 

I thoroughly enjoy being a school counselor, where I can support my students as they strive for their very best in life.  It is an honor to be working with the parents, faculty, administrators and students in Griffin-Spalding, and I look forward to a bright and productive school year.

At Moreland Road, we teach our students our expectations.  Every day, our faculty and staff teach our three (3) P.B.I.S. school-wide expectations:

  1. Be Well-Mannered
  2. Be Responsible
  3. Be Eager to do the Right Thing
Each week, teachers teach Skill-Streaming lessons and Project Wisdom/Character Education lessons.  Teachers also have access to additional P.B.I.S.  Cool Tools lesson plans on our share drive.

Our P.B.I.S. mission is to increase student achievement by providing a positive environment conducive to learning while decreasing inappropriate behavior. 

We have a team that meets monthly to disaggregate our discipline data, achievement data, and attendance data, to plan the end of the nine weeks P.B.I.S. school-wide celebrations, to implement strategies to address behavioral concerns, to implement rewards for students and teachers, etc. 

In conclusion, I would like to solicit your support to encourage positive behaviors at home and in school.  Please remind your child every morning to follow our P.B.I.S expectations.

Thank you for all that you do to support our school.
