Danita Stevenson, M.S. 


I am Danita Stevenson and this is my first year as a School Counselor. I am elated to have the opportunity to be of service to the scholars of Monticello Elementary School. My goal is to provide a safe space for scholars to express themselves freely, while supporting and guiding scholars on the path to success. I graduated from Jones College in 2016 with my Associate's degree. In 2018, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Child and Family Studies with an emphasis in Family Relations from The University of Southern Mississippi. #SMTTT! In 2022, I received my Master's of Counseling Psychology, School Counseling from William Carey University. I am an active member of the American School Counseling Association (ASCA). I am committed to the success of each and every scholar.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns, questions, or suggestions. Together we can work as a team to ensure success for each scholar.
