Counselor

Alcott School Counseling Program

Hello Alcott Family! My name is Andrea Jones, and I am the school counselor at Alcott. As a school counselor, I provide students with comprehensive school counseling services addressing areas of academic, social-emotional, and career success. I work with students by delivering classroom lessons, providing small groups, and doing individual check-ins. I am also continuing to provide these services remotely. For more information, please visit my counselor Teams page. It is called ALC-Counselor-Jones and should appear in your child’s list of Teams they are a part of.

My role also includes making sure families have their basic needs met. If you are in need of community resources, financial assistance, internet, or food, please contact me. I also have some resources listed on the right.

In our district, we utilize Kelso’s Choices and Second Step for our social-emotional learning. We use Kelso’s Choices to solve small problems and utilize Second Step for a variety of other topics including empathy, bullying, and emotion management. I included some helpful resources below.

To let you know a little more about myself, I grew up in southern Idaho and then went on to live in Portland, OR. This is where I completed my bachelor’s in Psychology and master’s in Counselor Education at Portland State University. While attending school, I worked for a college readiness program while interning at elementary schools and fell in love with working with students of all ages. When not at school, I love spending time with friends and family, hiking, and cheering on the Mariners and Seahawks. This is my 3rd year at Alcott, and I am so excited to continue to support our students, families, and community!

If you have any questions, concerns, or need support, feel free to reach out to me at andrjones@lwsd.org or (425) 936-2490. We can also set up a meeting on Microsoft Teams. I look forward to working with you this year!
