Hello, I am Ms. Joanna Farmer, the school counselor for Williams Junior High School. I began my career in education in 1986 as a Special Education Teacher, with certification in the area of Emotional Conflict. My first teaching position was in Mobile, Alabama working at Council Elementary School and later at Mae Eanes Middle School. Originally from the North Alabama area, my career brought me back to this area to be closer to my family. I was hired by Huntsville City Schools as a special education teacher at Lee High School in 1992. During this time I was in the process of completing my certification in school counseling. I started my career as a school counselor at Lee High School in 2004. I worked at Lee until the fall of 2015 when I transferred to Williams Middle School.

I have been married for 24 years and I have two sons. My oldest son is currently enrolled in the Welding Program at Calhoun in Decatur and my youngest son is a sophomore at East Limestone High School. I enjoy reading, gardening and outdoor activities. I have three pets: Jake, a Great Pyrenees, Teddy, a Shih Tzu, and Tiger a cat.
