The Blog is Back!!!

I would like to welcome everyone back to the Moody Jr. High School Blog.

Let me take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Jared W Bowman and I am very happy to be your new school counselor! I come to MJHS by way of JBS Mental Health Authority. Since 2009 I have been working in the non-profit mental health world, most recently through a grant with the St. Clair County School System called Project C.O.P.E. During my time with Project C.O.P.E. I was an outpatient therapist providing therapy to students in St. Clair County Schools. When the opportunity to join the staff here at Moody Jr. High presented itself, I jumped at it. I have always had a love for education. I have a bachelor’s degree in Youth Ministry from Bob Jones University and a masters in Counselor Education from Jacksonville State University. Prior to working for JBS Mental Health, I was a special education co-teacher/case manager at Pell City High School from 2006-2009. I am married to my lovely wife, Lindsey, and we are expecting our first child, Beatrice Quimby (pics to follow), at the beginning of October. When I am not at school I am usually at home herding cats, watching music videos on YouTube, or indulging in really lame Reality TV.

My goal as school counselor is to work with the students here to help them become the best versions of themselves possible. This philosophy fits right in with the faculty, staff, and administration at MJHS as well as with the leadership of the St. Clair County School System. Together we can Prepare Tomorrow’s Leaders Today.

I hope you will check back here often. My plan is to update this site weekly. Here you will be able to keep up with all the happenings going on at MJHS. I will also occasionally post helpful articles for parents here as well.
