Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Melissa Lindsey and I am the PROUD school counselor at Midland International Elementary School! This is my 11th year as a school counselor and my eighth year in District 11. I received my Bachelors in Sociology from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2000 and my Masters of Science in Counseling from the University of Phoenix in 2008. Before moving back to Colorado Springs, I was a School Counselor on the Navajo Reservation in Sanders, Arizona. I enjoyed my three years living and working on "The Rez," but I'm very excited to be back home near my family and friends!
Here at Midland International, we believe in fair and consistent discipline that encourages students to be responsible for themselves. We try to create a safe environment where courtesy and kindness prevail and where there is respect for differences in other people, customs and cultures.
As your child’s school counselor, it is my responsibility to help your child get the best possible education. A good education includes not only learning to read, write and do math, but learning great social skills! This means learning how to get along with other children, making good decisions, controlling anger, accepting responsibility, and being aware of their strengths and weaknesses. Through classroom guidance lessons and individual and group counseling, I am here to make sure your child has a successful year as a MIDLAND MUSTANG!!
