    Deirdre Clayton


    Ms. Gaiter

    My name is Chanel Gaiter. The 2020-2021 school year is my first year at APR, but my 5th year as a school counselor. I started my school counseling career by moving to Jacksonville and becoming a school counselor at JEB Stuart Middle School. Before I moved to Jacksonville, I attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. There I earned a B.S. in Psychology with minors in Anthropology and Communication Studies, a M. Ed in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in Social Foundations of Education, and an M.Ed./Ed. S in Counselor Education with a specialization in School Counseling.


    I am originally from Miami where I was a student in the International Baccalaureate program at North Miami Senior High. I have always been interested in learning about, helping, and studying people and eventually found an interest in social inequality in education. My overall goals at APR are to motivate and assist students in developing and pursuing their long-term career and college goals along with providing mental health care.
