My name is Kareem A. J. Jones. I was born and raised in Oxford, Mississippi. I am one of six children. I graduated from Oxford High School. After graduation, I attended Northwest Community College where I earned my Associates of Arts in Secondary Education. I received my Bachelor of Arts in history and minored in English at The University of Mississippi. I received my Masters of Education at Cambridge College. I have been working in mental health/education for fourteen years. Six of those years I worked for Youth Villages (Bartlett Campus) in Bartlett, Tennessee as a teacher counselor, clinical liaison and residential counselor. I worked for Communicare in Oxford, Mississippi and Spectrum Academy in Nashville, Tennessee as a school therapist.
Due to COVID-19, my office hours have changed to Mondays and Thursdays from 10:00am to 3:00pm. In order for me to provide counseling services to students attending the career and technical center, I will post classroom guidance lessons in the personal/social section with due dates and links to the assignment. Students are asked to submit a paragraph about what they learned to their instructor for a participation grade.
