M-Z Counselor

Ms. Niviea Williams

  My name is Niviea Williams, a Gainesville native. I am the co-founder of 500 Queens. A graduate of Morris Brown College, Central      Michigan University, and the University of Southern California. I am excited to return home to work with our scholars.  I will serve        scholars with the last names M-Z. Although these scholars are on my caseload, I welcome all scholars.  

  I have a passion for working with young people. I am committed to the mission and vision of our Proud Principal of making             Gainesville Middle School West a World Class School.  I believe in being intentional with my approach to working with scholars. My      motto is EDUCATE, EQUIP, EXPOSE and EMPOWER!

Thank you for deciding to come WEST!
