Mrs. Joycelyn Smith

Hello, I am Ms. Joycelyn Smith, School Counselor here at Phoenix. Though this is my first year here at Phoenix, surprisingly, this is my 18th year in education. I started my educational journey as a music teacher and after obtaining my Masters in School Counseling, switched over to being a School Counselor - which I enjoy greatly. I obtained my BA in Music Education from Hampton University and my Master's in School Counseling and Specialist in Ed. Leadership from Capella University. I have worked in all settings with children from elementary to high school in several states. Education is the gateway to many doors. Being educated teaches you how to navigate the doors which are for you.
