Counselor

Alcott School Counseling Program

Hello Alcott Family! My name is Andrea Jones and I am the school counselor at Alcott. To let you know a little 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.

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 plan to continue providing these services remotely, so stayed tuned for more information in the next few weeks.

My role also includes making sure families have their basic needs met. To better help me support your family during this 2020-2021 school year, please fill out the following survey:

Alcott Elementary Family Support Survey*

*Your privacy is important to us, therefore all information collected from the survey will be kept confidentially by the school counselor. If you have a school-related need that is not mentioned in this survey, please let me know and I will work with you to see if we can fulfill that need.

If you have any questions, concerns, or need support, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at andrjones@lwsd.org. We can also set up a meeting on Microsoft Teams.
