I am Marcia Bibb, the School Counselor for the California Middle School. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice from Culver-Stockton College. After earning my Bachelor’s degree I spent twelve years working for the Missouri Division of Children’s Services both as a social worker and a supervisor. While working as a supervisor at the Children’s Division, I completed my Master of Education in Counseling. I am currently in my 16th year as a school counselor. I spent one year working at California High School. I have spent the rest of the time at California Middle School as well as spending several years splitting my time between the California Middle School and California Elementary School.
I currently teach classes at all 3 grade levels. My classes focus on Career Development,(job skills and identifying areas of career interest using student strengths) Academic Development (improving school skills), Personal Development (making safe and healthy choices) and Social Development (improving and maintaining peer relationships). I also meet with students individually and in small groups as needed to improve social skills, emotional control and academic achievement.
I work collaboratively with teachers, parents and other professionals as needed to ensure students are achieving to the best of their abilities. I am the case manager for the 504 program at the middle school. I also am one of 2 sponsors for the middle school peer helper program.
I enjoy my job tremendously and want to help all students become successful adults. I want to assist them in overcoming challenges and be there to help celebrate successes.
