National School Counseling Week

National School Counseling Week

 February 1st-5th is National School Counseling Week.  “The Recipe for Success!”

This is a week to celebrate and recognize all the ways school counselors are an integral part of student success.  Success, and how we measure it, takes many shapes and forms.  There is no single ingredient that will determine your success or failure, but many different ones.  Passion and a desire to continuously improve are two such ingredients.

My job as a school counselor is to help students on their journey and work with them to prepare for life after they finish school.  I’ll help you write your own recipe for success!!

About Jennifer D. Woody

Hello! I am the part-time school counselor at Echo Lake this year along with full-time counselor, Julie Williams. I am from East Tennesse. I have my undergraduate degree in psychology from Mars Hill University (near Asheville, NC) and my graduate degree in counseling education from VCU. I have been in Richmond since 1999 and I have seven years experience as a school counselor. I spent one year at Longan Elementary and six years at Johnson Elementary both in Henrico County. I have three children and have been a stay-at-home mom for the past five years. My children are all elementary age; 3rd grade, 1st grade and Kindergarten and now is the time to return to what I love doing by easing in as a part-time counselor. I look forward to getting to know staff, students, and Echo Lake families. This is a wonderful school and community! I am at Echo Lake part-time. I am here full day on Tuesdays and Thursdays and half day on Fridays. I have started classroom guidance lessons in Kindergarten and Ist grade classes. We are learning how to be good students by listening carefully, always working hard and paying attention. I am the contact person for the International Baccalaureate Program at Moody Middle School for rising 5th graders. I am here for all students. I can see individual students from parent and teacher referral. I am happy to work with your child(ren).
