Terri James Solomon
Associate Director of College Counseling
Joined Milton in 2005
Ms. Solomon comes from a long line of educators, but she decided early on she wanted to be a psychologist. In college, however, the education courses were most appealing to her. Since then, she has taught in public and private schools, and consulted with schools and community organizations. Prior to Milton, she worked at Wellesley College where she was a career counselor and an admission officer. At Milton, Ms. Solomon is faculty advisor to the Students Interested in Middle Eastern Affairs (SIMA) club. She lives with her husband and two sons.
B.A. in psychology, Wellesley College
M.Ed. in psychology in education, University of Pennsylvania
The best part of my job is the students—I love watching their growth over time. In my role, I work with students intensely for 18-months, and I’ve known many students who’ve started in one place and made huge leaps in their thinking. That development, that maturity, is very exciting. Many students return after they graduate, and I love to see how they are thriving.Terri James Solomon
