Smithfield Selma Professional School Guidance Counselor: 2020-2021
Greetings Smithfield Community! My name is Curtis Brown, Jr. and I have the privilege of serving the Smithfield community as a Professional School Counselor this year.
Who Am I? I am an educator, husband, father, Pastor, and community leader, and I serve in several capacities in and around my community. Before beginning my career as a Professional School Guidance Counselor, I worked with students as a classroom Business teacher in Cumberland County. My desire was to work with students in a different capacity so I returned to UNC Pembroke and received my Professional School Counseling certification.
In addition to helping students, I also have a passion to help families, so I returned to school and earned a Masters' Degree in Human Services/ Family and Marital Counselor. I am glad to say that I love being in the high school counseling setting and doing what I truly love, and that is helping other people. I am looking forward to my new journey here at SSS and for great things to happen. Go Spartans!!!!
