Working With You


About Me 
Hi  I'm Jill Hayes

Guiding with Purpose

As a middle school counselor, my belief is that all children have the ability to be successful academically, socially and emotionally.  Through one-on-one, small group and classroom guidance, I collaborate with parents, teachers and administration to ensure that each student's unique needs are met.

Middle school is an exciting time for adolescents and not one without challenges.  With parents and educators working together, we can provide a safe environment for children to learn and develop social emotional skills such as:  Self-awareness, self-regulation, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making.  Emotional Intelligence may well be the new measure for success.  Developing students’ Emotional Intelligence (EQ) fosters the confidence in their ability to succeed and enables them to become stronger leaders.  It is my goal to help them achieve those goals.
