Qualifications: Bachelor's of Art in Art Master's of Art in Counseling

Mrs. Jessica Duff

Bienvenidos! I’m a small town girl who graduated from Copperas Cove High School, attended Central Texas College, then joined the United States Army serving as a Human Resources Specialist. After 6 years of military life, I completed a Bachelor's degree in Art at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Next, I gained a Master's degree in Counseling at Wayland Baptist San Antonio. I started my first year of teaching at Metzger Middle School as a 6th grade Reading Teacher, where I earned "Novice Teacher of the Year" and served as the ELAR Department Chair. Three years later, I accepted a 5th grade English Language Arts & Reading teaching position at Ed Franz Elementary, where I taught for two years and served as Lead Teacher. My biggest aspiration was to become a school counselor and I achieved that dream right here at Metzger Middle School in 2021. 

My husband works for Judson ISD as well and we have two beautiful sons. Outside of work, we spend lots of quality time together and enjoy doing aaallllll the toddler and kiddie-friendly activities around San Antonio and surrounding cities.

Hello Mustangs! I'm proud to be the 7th grade counselor here at Metzger. I've been an educator with Judson ISD for the past 14 years. I was previously an RTI facilitator for an elementary school and I've also taught 1st and 2nd grades. I'm excited to have the opportunity to support our students and help them achieve success!

Mr. Shotwell

Hello Mustangs,
As a Judson ISD alum and current resident, I am so grateful to serve a community that means so much to me. Growing up in this community has given me great insight into the strengths we share as well as some of the challenges we face. Currently, I am entering my eight year in education with this being my first year serving as a school counselor.  I received my bachelor's degree in history and education from the University of the Incarnate Word and my Masters degree in counseling and guidance  from the University of Texas A&M-San Antonio. I look forward to serving the Metzger Mustang community as your 8th grade counselor.
