My name is Jennifer Sherman, and I am thrilled to be the new school counselor at Randolph Elementary! Go Thunderbirds! This is going to be a wonderful year filled with learning, growing, and lots of new adventures. I cannot wait to get to know you, your family, and most importantly, your child!
First, let me take a moment to tell you a few things about me. I was born and raised in San Antonio, TX. I attended the University of the Incarnate Word where I graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. In 2003, I earned an EC-4 teaching certificate from the University of Texas San Antonio. Then, In 2016, I obtained my Master of Education degree in School Counseling from Lamar University. I worked as a teacher for 16 years at Ft. Sam Houston Elementary before I joined the Randolph Elementary family. I have been married to my husband, Chris, for 14 years. Together, we have two beautiful daughters, Ava (12) and Lauren (8). We also have two adorable Basset Hounds named Trixie and Bailey.
This will be my first year as a School Counselor, and I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to pursue my passion, elementary school counseling. I am so excited that I will be able to continue to serve military children and their families! My hope is that this school year will be full of fun and successful experiences for all students.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have about the school counseling program, or if there is anything I can do to assist you and your child!
