Hello. My name is Mrs. Hutchinson, and I am your 11th and 12th grade counselor. I was born, raised, and graduated from right here in Kosciusko. I am married with two children and two grandchildren. I have been away for several years because my husband was in the military. We decided to make this our home again after he retired from the Army. I am so excited to be back and feel that I am giving back to the community that I enjoyed growing up in. After graduating from Kosciusko High School, I attended Holmes Community College and earned my associate degree. I then transferred to Mississippi State where I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I began my educational journey 11 years ago in Vicksburg, Mississippi as a classroom teacher. I later moved to Texas where I continued teaching until I became a counselor three years ago. I love being able to help others fulfill their dreams and goals. That’s one of the reasons I became a counselor. I look forward to meeting all of you to help you grow in every area of your life.

Degree’s and Certifications:

  • Bachelor of Science - Mississippi State University
  • Master of Arts - Mississippi State University
  • Counselor’s Certification - Texas Region 12

My Goal

My goal is to help all students in the areas of academics, career, and social/emotional development. I also strive to ensure all students are productive in every area of their lives that will help them as the adults of tomorrow.
