My name is Jenny Readhimer. I have been married for 11 years and have a 3 year old little boy named Grayson. I have taught 4th grade, 2nd grade, and Kindergarten for 3 years, a total of 6 years, and this is my second year to be a school counselor.
I believe all children can learn, grow, and succeed. Every child deserves an environment filled with love and encouragement where they feel safe from chastisement and ridicule. Children should always feel valued as a part of the classroom community and show respect by what is modeled around them in the classroom. It's my job to create a positive learning environment where all children's learning styles shine and can grow into lifelong learners.
My Kindergarten teacher meant the world to me. I had never been in a structured classroom setting until my first day of Kindergarten. She was my home away from home. She was sweet, patient, caring, and made me love going to school. It was then I decided I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up. As I got older, I stuck to that desire to want to be the same influence on others as my teacher was to me, and so I decided to go further with my education and get my Master's in School Counseling. I still wanted to be an influence to children, but on a different level, and one on one as opposed to a classroom setting.
Students, I look forward to working with every single one of you when I come into your classrooms weekly for guidance lessons, as well as one on one when you just need to talk to someone in a non-biased, judgment free zone. Parents, please feel free to come and talk to me about anything that concerns you about your child and know I am here to listen and help however I can.
