Miss J, School CounselorMiss J

Hi Marvelous Mustangs! Welcome back!

If you're new, welcome to Hemmerling, the wonderful Home of the Mustangs. We are so glad to have you apart of our school family.My name is Miss J and this is my third year as your School Counselor and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) Tier II/III Coordinator.

There is nothing I love more than building relationships with students and their families that inspire and equip students to succeed at Hemmerling and beyond! I am here to assist you in any way I can, every step of the way. 

In order to keep our school family connected, I cohost Hemmerling's monthly Youtube series "Mustang Minute," hold daily Grade-level Hangouts, and teach important social, emotional, or academic skills through classroom guidance lessons. 

For students needing extra help for them to be successful at school, I provide short term (4-6 weeks) individual or group sessions focused on building important academic, social, or emotional skills. Examples of things I can help with are:

  • Making and Keeping Friends
  • Self-esteem
  • Anger or Worry
  • Family Changes
  • Coping with COVID stress
  • and Self-control

I'm excited to meet you! 

Miss J

Miss Sara, Associate Therapist

Welcome back to school, Hemmerling students!

So excited to welcome you to the 2020-2021 academic school year! My name is Mrs Sara. I am a part of the counseling staff here at Hemmerling Elementary School.

My role in our school, as part of the Tier III system, is to support students who can benefit from specific types of counseling support.

Types of services I provide are:

  • Longer-term Individual Counseling
  • Specific Types of Group Counseling
  • Crisis Counseling/Risk Assessments

Since I provide a specialized service, most of the students I see for counseling must be referred to me through Hemmerling's Tier II/III team that I'm apart of. 

Can't wait to see you soon!
