Mrs. Stefanie Jurista - School Counselor

908-273-1190 ext. 4510

My name is Stefanie Jurista and this is my 11th year at Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School. I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Arts & Sciences and a Minor in Spanish. Following my undergraduate experience I enrolled in Fordham University and completed my Masters in Counseling & Education. Additionally, I have internship experience at East Hanover Middle School & Stuyvesant High School in New York City.

I have been working with middle school aged children for over ten years, and I am passionate about helping students as they navigate their way through the middle school years. There is a lot of learning and growing during this period and I am thrilled to be able to help my students as they go through many changes and new life experiences. I am currently working on completing a second Master's of Education at Ramapo College of New Jersey in Educational Leadership.

If you would like to contact me directly for any questions or concerns, I can be reached at (908) 273-1190 ext. 4510
