Joel Dwire
​My name is Joel Dwire and I am the 7th grade School Counselor.  This is my 7th year at John Adams Middle School.  I love being a John Adams Jaguar.  I think that our school, staff and students are awesome.  A large part of my role as a school counselor is to support our students academically, socially and emotionally.  My hope is that all students who are seeking support find their way to our Student Services Center to receive the assistance that they need and want.  Go Jaguars!

Ranny Ou

Hi, my name is Chhomran (Ranny) Ou. I am the new 6th grade  counselor. I have spent the last 18 years working as a school counselor at Mayo High School. Prior to that I taught math courses in Burnsville, MN.  I am excited to join the John Adams Jaguar community. I know I will have a steep learning curve working with middle school students, but I am looking forward to work with JA staff to support our students.  As a school counselor, I will support students academically, socially and emotionally, and career readiness.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns or just drop in at the Student Service Center.  I hope that all students and families who are seeking support find their way to our Student Services Center.  Go Jaguars!
