Mrs. Tarran K. Jefferson


My name is Tarran K. Jefferson and I have served as the School Counselor at Griffin Middle School for the past 10 years. In addition to being the school counselor, I am also the  Testing Coordinator, Student Council Advisor, and the PBIS Coordinator.  Additionally, I am the House Leader for the rocking red House of NGUVU. For the 2023-2024 school year, I will be serving as the 6th grade couselor for last names A-L and the 8th grade counselor (but am available to assist in anyway). Even though I wear many hats at Grffin, I always find time to ensure that all of my students are successful at Griffin Middle School. I am a native of Mobile, Alabama and hold a Bachelor's Degree in Agricultural Business and Economics and a Masters' of Education in School Guidance and Counseling from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. I am a member of the Tallahassee Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta and am married with three children. 

It is my great pleasure to work with all faculty, staff, parents and students at Griffin Middle School. Please click on any tab that relates to your use for guidance (whether you are a student or parent). If there is anyway I can assist, please do not hesitate to contact me  @ (850) 778-2295 or
