    Hello Cooley Families!

    My name is Shannon Alexander and I am the counselor for all student (7th and 8th grade) at Cooley Middle School. I am so excited to work with all of the amazing students who are entering and returning to Cooley this year! I am a graduate of the Master of Counseling program at Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!) where I completed both the school counseling and clinical mental health tracks. This will be my 6th year at Cooley and I am excited to get to know our newest group of Cooley Cougars. Prior to CMS I was working as a Child & Family Therapist at a community mental health organization in Apache Junction where I provided counseling services to children (4-17 yrs old) and their families. Last year we had an amazing year at Cooley and it is my goal to continue to make myself available to all the students here at Cooley and to make them feel comfortable asking for help, whether it is academic advice and guidance, personal and social counseling, or anything else that might be causing our students any additional stress.

    We are very lucky to have a part-time counselor on our campus 2 days a week this year! Meghann Sherman will be at Cooley on Mondays and Tuesdays, students will be able to meet with either counselor. 

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
