My name is Mrs. Guthrie and this is my second year as the counselor at McDonald Elementary. I taught elementary school for nine years, all of which was in Ferris ISD. Before my career in education, I obtained my Bachelor of Psychology as well as my teaching certification from Southern Methodist University. I completed my Masters of Education in School Counseling from the University of North Texas at Dallas in 2018. Although I am a lifelong resident of Dallas, my heart has belonged to Ferris since day 1.

Teaching is what motivated me to pursue my career in counseling. I am very passionate about the importance of teaching to the whole child, especially in the areas of social and emotional wellbeing. As adults, it is critical that we instill in our children the skills they will need to thrive in relationships, communication and conflict resolution.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have and I am happy to help!

Mrs. Jamie L. Guthrie
