Hi! My name is Raqiya Mohamed and I am a licensed school counselor. I teach a course called JAG here at Wellstone International High School. JAG stands for Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) which is a national program dedicated to preventing student dropout and focusing on pathways to career, life, and college readiness among young people who face significant barriers to academic and career success. As a JAG specialist my goal is to help students remain in school through graduation, pursue post-secondary education opportunities, and secure quality entry-level jobs leading to career advancement opportunities.
This is my first official year teaching at Wellstone. I’ve been with Wellstone since 2013. I graduated from University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I recently graduated in May 2016 from University of Wisconsin-River Falls with a Masters in School Counseling.
