My name is Galissia Graves and I am a licensed school counselor in the state of North Carolina. I have served in the public school system for seven years. I also hold an NCC, National Certified Counselor. I am also a member of the North Carolina School Counseling Association. I am originally from Greensboro, NC but received my Bachelors of Arts in Sociology in May 2010 and Masters of Education in School Counseling in May 2013 both from The University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

I am an advocate for all and here to make sure that students are successful in any path. I also support parents and staff ensuring that children's needs are being met holistically. Education is my passion and I enjoy working with and supporting children of any age. I developed a strong sense of devotion to the community and the desire to improve the quality of life for youth through academic achievement, social-emotional learning, and personal growth. I believe that everyone has the ability to do great things.

I am Hireshemo Clark. Over the course of roughly 2 decades, my educational philosophy evolved to include a unique combination of laboratory, as well as applied work experiences. For the past 20 years, I worked directly with others as members of very close-knit teaching and learning communities. As I reflect upon these years of experience, it has become apparent that my attitudes were greatly influenced by many individuals and, who helped to kindle my desire to keep learning and growing, while also encouraging others to do the same. It seems, my implied motto has been to “lift others as I climbed.”
I am employed by Chicago Public Schools as the Executive Director of Operations & Instruction for the Office of Diverse Learner Supports & Services (ODLSS). I also serve as Adjunct Professors for both Trinity Christian College and North Park University, where I teach Neuroscience and Developmental Psychology, respectively.
I currently possess the state of Arizona, Department of Public Safety’s, Level One Fingerprint Clearance Card, Standard School Psychologist, PreK – 12, Standard Professional Supervisor, PreK – 12, and Standard Professional Principal, PreK – 12. My Illinois State Board of Education Credentials include a Professional Educator’s License w/ endorsements in School Psychology and General Administration. I also possess a Director of Special Education (DOS 180) endorsement.
I am very excited to explore the possibility of being able to making a valid contribution to youth, especially around psychological services, strategic planning and continuous improvement.
