Counselor’s Corner
Hello! My name is Mrs. Terra Johnson, LPC, and I am very excited to be your School Counselor.   I have experience in mental health and substance abuse counseling in private practice, community mental health, residential and hospital settings. I provided services for adults, adolescents and children. I look forward to my first year as your school counselor and a West Newton Wild Cat.
I am originally from Baltimore, Maryland and received my primary education in the City of Baltimore Public Schools, Baltimore County Public Schools, and Jefferson County Public Schools (Georgia) prior to graduating from Milford Mill Academy, Baltimore, Maryland.  I completed studies in Psychology (B.S.) and Justice Studies (minor) at Georgia Southern University and M.S. Professional Counseling at Georgia State University.
My husband, Cedric, and I have been married for 12 years. We are the proud parents of two daughters Cameron (Fifth Grade) and Bailey (Pre-K). Our family currently reside in DeKalb County.
As the Counselor at West Newton Elementary I aim to COLLABORATE with our team and to INSPIRE our future leaders to be their very BEST.
