• 7th Grade Counselor, Ms. Pearson-King

Meet Ms. King

  • My journey working with children and families began initially in social services and higher education.  I have held various positions within the last 15 years, such as a transitional living counselor, group home counselor, college enrollment counselor, and career counselor.  I pursued my Master of Education Degree in Counselling from Cambridge University. After graduating, I began my journey in post-secondary education as a school counselor at the high school level in Memphis, TN.  I moved to Florida to work as a middle school counselor for Indian River School in 2019 and in 2022, I joined the BMS Counseling team.  Since moving back to Georgia, I have truly enjoyed supporting our 7th-grade teachers, students, and their families as they strived for academic success and personal growth. Here at BMS, I have an open-door policy for my students, teachers, and parents.  I love being a part of BMS and I look forward to many years with the BMS counseling department. 

    Beyond the Berkmar Middle School Counseling Department, I am a member of the PBIS team and our school’s REACH scholarship coordinator. Outside of school counseling, I enjoy playing tennis, hiking, swimming, and spending time with my family. My aspirations in life are to always be the light in a dark room, exude positivity, and always remain humble.

Ms. Lasha Pearson-King, 7th Grade Counselor
