Mrs. Jones' Counseling Corner
Meet The Counselor
My name is Whitney Jones and this will be my first year at Nancy Reynolds. Student welfare, success, and achievement are just some of the elements that have allowed my passion for school counseling to thrive. What can I say, it is my nirvana! My roots are established in Surry County, where I was born and raised. I enjoy any activity that will allow me to be outside such as, gardening, walking my dogs, playing with my chickens, hiking, running, kayaking, cycling, etc. I also love spending time with my wonderful family. Please feel free to explore the NR Counseling Corner for more information regarding the comprehensive school counseling program and other vital resources.
*My office is located in the front office, room 117.

What does the NRES School Counselor Do?
As a School Counselor, I perform the following roles in order to promote positive development in academic, career, and personal/social domains:
Small group counseling
Classroom guidance (i.e. Large group counseling)
Attend and participate in academic intervention meetings
Observe students in various school environments
Consult and collaborate with parents, teachers, administrators, social workers, and students
Respond to school crises or emergency situations
Provide information and resources to parents on a variety of issues
The School Counselor is a resource and an advocate for all students, staff, parents and the community.
A School Guidance program should be comprehensive in scope, developmental in nature and preventative in design.
A School Guidance program should be intentional and include academic, career and personal/social components.
Positive relationships between students and adults are the key to student success.
