    Melissa Wright is your full-time school counselor this year.  She joins the Farragut family after spending the past 8.5 years as a full-time mom.  Prior to this role, she worked as a school counselor in the Greater Atlanta area and, more recently, Karns Elementary here in Knox County.  After serving in a room-mom role, it is a distinct privilege to officially join the FPS staff.

    Our student population permits FPS a part-time counselor this year!  Her name is Deedee Brownlee, and she will be here on Wednesdays.  She interned with Ms. Mimi before joining Knox county schools 11 years ago.  Her experience at A.L.Lott’s and Maynard further developed her role as a school counselor.  We are fortunate to have her!

     
    Our school is very child-centered, and our staff loves having the privilege of working with our primary-aged students, helping them learn and grow and have some fun along the way!  May this be a happy and productive year for every single one of our students!  If your child should have difficulties that interfere with school success, please let me know.  I'll be glad to help!  My number at school is 865-671-5027, and my e-mail address is melissa.wright2@knoxschools.org.
