Halima Escort-Moore - Vice Chair


My name is Halima Escort-Moore and I am originally from Brooklyn, NY. I currently reside in New Jersey with my husband and three sons. I attended Virginia State University where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Administration Supervision and a Master's degree in Guidance and Counseling. I have worked for over 25 years in the counseling, and psychotherapy field. Before becoming a school counselor, I worked as an In-home therapist, Juvenile Rehabilitation Counselor, Substance Abuse Counselor, and have held a host of volunteer/community service positions.  My first school counseling position was at Learning Community Charter School. While working at LCCS I earned a Master's degree in Administration Supervision from St. Peter's University in Jersey City, NJ. After leaving Learning Community Charter School I worked for Newark Public Schools for 14 years. I am currently the College Counselor at College Achieve Central Charter High School. It gives me great joy to help students and families reach their goals and make a better life for themselves. My belief is that if a little black girl from Brooklyn can do it so can you.  Together with God as our guide we can PLAN your goals, PREPARE for your goals and REACH YOUR GOALS! Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil; it has no point!
