3-5 Counselor- Ms. Donna Adams
Hello! My name is Donna Adams, and I am the School Counselor for the 3rd – 5th grade students at TCES!
When I am not at work, I love spending time with family and friends. Going to the beach, traveling, and I LOVE any and everything Italy! (I even hope to visit someday!)
I earned my M.Ed in School Counseling from Liberty university in 2011. Prior to working as a school counselor at Timberlin Creek, I was the school counselor in Yorktown, VA for the last six years. I have been working in education for more than 25 years and most of those years were in higher education working for colleges and universities wherever the Air Force took us.
I am married to Chris, a US Air Force veteran, and we have lived in many exciting places. We are very happy to be able to settle in the St. Johns area!
We have four children (grown) and 3 grandchildren so far!
I am very fortunate to be doing what I love and feel is the best job in the world! I am excited to get to know your child and your family, and I am 100% committed to helping our students succeed.
