Counselor - John Moorehead




Mr. Moorehead

In my 9th year as a guidance counselor, I am excited to to be back in 6th grade.  Throughout the year, our 6th graders and I will be tackling several topics such as: social/emotional concepts, neuroscience & brain development, work values, and various soft skills. 

In terms of my background:

I grew up in Crown Point, Indiana - a city that is often times referred to as being a part of "the region" - and am heavily influenced by the culture of Chicago.  My love for Chicago sports runs deep! Go Cubs Go!

I have graduated with degrees from both Purdue University and Butler University in secondary education and school counseling, respectively. Boiler Up & Go Dawgs!

Prior to becoming a counselor, I taught Sociology and Psychology at Pike High School and have been involved in the world of education for the past 18 years.  

I hope to work with your son/daughter to make this an enjoyable school year for them here at NWMS!  

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
