School Counselor (A-L)

Request to see a counselor

My name is Ashley Ali and I am a school counselor here at Andrew Jackson Middle.  This will be my 1st year serving GPISD. Before becoming an Eagle, I served as a 1st grade teacher for two years and Kindergarten teacher for one year.  I earned a Bachelors of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from Lamar University and a Masters of Education in School Counseling from Texas Christian University. I am currently working toward my LPC-I. I use the solution-focused approach when working with our students.  This allows them to focus on goal setting and making positive decisions for the future.    

When I am not serving the students at Jackson, I enjoy loving on my fur babies.  I also enjoy playing soccer, traveling and attending sporting events. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me for assistance.  Wishing everyone a great 2017-2018 school year!

Counseling

  • The middle school years—more than during any other stage of life—are filled with dramatic changes in life experiences, body changes, intellectual growth, and emotional expansion. It is both an exciting and challenging time in an adolescent’s life. The counselors at Jackson Middle School are here to support students during this period of transition and growth by helping them to gain a greater understanding of themselves and others, succeed in school, and grow to become responsible and productive members of the community.
     
    Each counselor is committed to helping students: 

    • Learn and practice skills that assist with healthy and responsible decision-making. 
    • Nurture the confidence and aspirations that are critical in preparing for college and career. 
    • Develop a resilience to overcome challenges in school and life. 
    • Maintain high expectations by providing adequate supports, building social capital, and conveying the conviction that all students can achieve.  

    The counseling office at the middle school level provides support services to students in a variety of ways:
