Mrs. Megan Shaw, Counselor
This will be my 17th year as a counselor, my fourth as a school counselor at Joplin. I have been married for 17 years and have 2 children, a 15-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter. My family keeps busy with football, golf, soccer, and volleyball during the school year and enjoys our summers at the cabin on the lake boating and fishing. I love to read, travel, digital scrapbook my families adventures, and staying active to keep up with my kids. My experiences as a mom have helped me to have compassion and understanding of the struggles that many families face today.
I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Idaho in Child Development and Family Relations. I always wanted to be a counselor so I continued my education earning my graduate degree from Northwest Nazarene University in counseling a couple years later. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Idaho as well.
I look forward to getting to know all the Joplin families. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions or concerns about your student.
I am at Joplin Tuesday-Friday.
