My name is Jessica Jordan and I have the privilege of being the School Counselor here at Hooksett Memorial School. I hold a BA in Psychology from University of New Hampshire, a M.Ed. in Special Education, a teaching certificate in School Counseling, and a CAGS in Mental Health Counseling, all from Rivier University. I have always enjoyed working with children and have had the pleasure of working with students across all grade levels over the course of my professional career, from preschool through high school.
The Guidance Program here at Hooksett Memorial is designed to meet the standards set forth by the National School Counseling Association. It is a comprehensive program designed to address the needs of the students as individuals and the school community as a whole. The greatest portion of my time is spent providing direct services to the students in the form of classroom guidance lessons, group/ individual counseling, and in response to students in crisis. The classroom guidance curriculum will cover important topics such as Social Thinking, perspective taking, conflict resolution, tolerance, career awareness, internet safety, bullying, and age-appropriate coping skills. Students will learn about these essential life skills through hands-on activities, stories, role-playing, projects, and group discussions.
In addition to the aforementioned responsibilities, I also serve as the building’s 504 Accommodation Plan Coordinator, PBIS Universal Team, Emergency Management Team, Peer Leadership Committee, and Crisis Intervention Team. Parents are always welcome to contact me through email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 485-9890 ext 1013 to arrange a time to meet or to address any issues/ concerns they may be having about their child. Students are also encouraged to see me or leave a message on my message board if they’d like to discuss any problems they may be experiencing.
I look forward to working with you and your child to ensure their continued educational success.
