About Me

Mrs. Horton
School Counselor
Grades 3-5


I’m glad that you are taking the time to learn more about me by visiting my website. I started working in Caroline County in 2003. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University for undergraduate and graduate school where I received a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and a Masters Degree in School Counseling. I live in Hanover County with my husband, Jason and our two adorable children, Mason and Teagan. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, baking, and going out on the boat.

Classroom guidance will be in collaboration with the classroom teacher every other week for 30 minutes. During classroom guidance I teach lessons on study skills, problem solving, getting along with others, and career interest. I meet with children individually and in groups to foster friendship skills, develop anger management and social skills, help students deal with loss, family concerns, and school concerns.

I look forward to working with your child. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. Phone:804-448-0175 email: mhorton@ccps.us

Thanks, Melissa Horton
