Schavonda Burton-Johnson

Counselor A-L

My name is Schavonda Burton-Johnson and I am a school counselor here at John Adams Middle.  This will be my 6th year serving the students, parents, and staff. Before becoming a Panther, I served as the school counselor at GPISD’s LBJ Elementary School for 3 years.  Prior to working in Grand Prairie, I served as a teacher for 9 years in Dallas ISD.  I earned a Bachelors of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from The University of Texas at Arlington and a Masters of Education in School Counseling from Dallas Baptist University.

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. I also strive to provide a comprehensive guidance program to all that I serve. In doing so, I was a member of the first counseling team in GPISD  to earn the CREST Award for Texas Counselors.    

When I am not serving the students at Adams, I enjoy spending time with my husband and sons.  I also enjoy event planning, floral design and attending sporting events. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me for assistance.  Wishing everyone a great 2016-2017 school year!

Counselor M-Z

Hello! My name is Monica Soliz and I’m extremely excited to be part of the Panther family. I’m a product of Grand Prairie ISD and graduated from Grand Prairie High School in 2002. I’m thrilled to be at Adams Middle School where I once attended as a student and now as a school counselor. Before becoming a school counselor, I taught Math and Science in the secondary level for 8 years. I received my Bachelor of Business Administration in Financial Consulting from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX and my Master of Education in School Counseling from Lamar University in Beaumont, TX. My mission is to provide a comprehensive developmental school counseling program addressing the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. As a leader, advocate, and collaborator in the school community, I will provide and facilitate appropriate services to meet the needs of all of our Panthers, so they may reach their fullest potential!
