Welcome 8th and 9th Grade Students and Parents!

  • My name is Briggett Harris, MA, RMHCI. I have been a school counselor for 11 years - initially starting at a middle school in St. Petersburg, Florida. 2020/2021 school year will be my 3rd year as the 8th and 9th-grade transition school counselor at Manatee School for the Arts. 


    I graduated from Webster University earning my Masters in School Counseling and Mental Health Counseling. I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Emmanuel College. My counseling theoretical orientation includes a combination of solution-focused and cognitive-behavioral techniques that provide the academic and social support students need to be successful in the classroom. I am very excited to be able to make a positive impact on our young leaders while encouraging them to learn, strive, and grow into life-long, responsible, self-sufficient young adults.
