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.

Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is also modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphones or tablet.  For parents that do not have access to the Internet, school administrators should consider scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school.  All parents should be encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysisIndividual data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below.
