My name is Mrs. Borho, and I have the joy of serving as the school counselor for students whose last names begin with A-L.
I earned my Bachelor of Science in History & English Writing from Mississippi College. I have served as an Admissions Counselor for Mississippi College and have also been a Youth Programs Coordinator within non-profit state programming. Working with students and pushing them to be the best version of themselves is my ultimate passion, which is what led me to the fields of education and counseling. I earned my M.Ed. in School Counseling from Mississippi College and completed the majority of my internship at Old Town Middle School. Prior to serving as a school counselor, I also taught social studies here at Old Town Middle School. (GO TITANS!!!) Recently, I graduated with my Ed.S. in Counseling. I have been married to my husband, Andrew, for five years and have two corgis named Windsor and Winston.
I am excited to continue serving our Titan family as a school counselor this year! My goal is to assist students in navigating the choices, challenges, and opportunities amidst their middle school journey while fostering personal, social-emotional, and academic growth. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns!
All the best,
EMOGERS: "Emotion Managers" are practical methods that help us manage and calm our emotions. Emogers are practiced through movements and gestures to remember different ways to feel better when we feel really angry, sad, scared, excited or any other emotion that is not helping us. This helps connect what we feel in our bodies with what we understand in our brains, and then we are able to make choices that are safe for ourselves and those around us.
