Jessica Baird is a School Counselor at Rivendell School. In her role, she provides support for the individual needs of the students and implements a classroom guidance program that fosters the social and emotional growth and wellness of the whole child. My goal is to work together with parents, staff, and students to help students discover their individual strengths and enhance their learning experience. Through this process, she strives to help every student improve academic achievement, navigate social and personal development and to assist them in planning for their future success.
Jessica’s personal philosophy of school counseling continues to expand as I gain knowledge and experience in this field. However, there are some things that have remained constant, and one of those is the desire she has to help students reach their maximum potential.
With a Bachelor's degree in elementary education and a double Masters in Arts in school counseling and clinical mental health counseling from the University of Northern Colorado, Jessica’s experiences and training have prepared her for providing support in the school environment.
Away from school, Jessica enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She also enjoys practicing yoga and outdoor activities such as camping and skiing. In 2019, her family is looking forward to growth and change as they prepare for their next child and their 3-year-old joins the Rivendell family as a preschool student.
