Mrs. Shamika Cole
Greetings 6th grade scholars! I am thrilled to be starting my 6th year as a mighty Gryphon and as your School Counselor for the 2020-2021 school year.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, Californina. I am a graduate of Howard University (go Bisons) in Washington, DC. Here, I earned my BS in Pschology and M.Ed in Guidance and Counselng. I moved to Charlotte, NC in 2015. I love the Spring/Summer weather in NC because it reminds me so much of California!
I am entering into my 18th year as a School Counselor where I spent 13th years as an Elementary School Counselor in Maryland. I look forward to meeting you all during your online classes this year. Although this is not the way you might have wanted to start a new phase in your life; entering middle school, I assure you we will get through this together and have one of the BEST school years ever!
