Jim Forbus

7th Grade Counselor

My name is Jim Forbus. I am excited to be the counselor for the 7th grade class. I have been a counselor at Lewis & Clark Middle School for the last 19 years and prior to that I taught for 6 years.

I graduated from Boise State University with my BA in Education in 1992 and with my MA in Counseling in 2000. After graduating I moved to California for a couple of years before moving back to Idaho.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four kids ages 21, 17, and twin 15 year olds. I like to spend time in the outdoors camping, fishing and skiing. I also love being involved in music as a percussionist and attending Boise State football games.

Please know that I am always here for your kids and available to address any concerns you might have. You can reach me at forbus.jim@westada.org or 350-4278.
