    Welcome to another school year! My name is Ms. Jacqueline Jessen and I will be one of your counselors this year. I have been teaching for the previous ten years and I am very excited to start my eleventh year as a counselor at Sun Ridge Middle School. Go Generals! I know this year is starting in a way none of us could have expected, but just know that I am here for you and we will get through this together!

  • Counseling Department Belief Statements  

    The school counselors at Sun Ridge Middle School believe: 

    • All students are scholars and they can succeed regardless of background or ability. They can reach their maximum potential which will result in being college and career ready. 
    • All scholars will have an opportunity to achieve their academic, social and personal goals and be productive members of society. 
    • All scholars will have an opportunity to access a comprehensive counseling program that is developmental in nature and driven by campus data. 
    • The role of the school counselor is to collaborate with scholars, teachers, parents, administration and other stakeholders to provide opportunities for personal, social and academic growth. 
    • Counselors advocate for all scholars by being part of the administration team, thus being leaders, advocates, and collaborators that create equity and opportunity for all. 
    • All scholars have access to a full-time, certified, licensed professional school counselor and counseling program that has a delivery system that includes school curriculum, individual planning and responsive services and system support that has a direct correlation to student achievement. 
    • School counselors and other stakeholders use data for planning, managing, delivery and evaluation of program activities.
    • Using the ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors allows the counselors to make sound decisions-based principles that have the best interest of scholars in mind.
