My name is Jana Timmons. I am the School Counselor at Sunset Elementary. This is my tenth year as a School Counselor. I earned a Counseling Psychology degree from Brigham Young University and a Masters of Educational Psychology from the University of Utah.
I have been married for 30 years and I have five children -- four sons, one daughter, and a daughter-in-law. We love spending time together as a family hiking, fishing, playing games, traveling and having new adventures.
I love being a School Counselor and helping kids!
a counselor's role
An Elementary School Counselor performs the vital role of setting the tone for developing the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary for children to become healthy, competent, and confident learners. Through a comprehensive developmental School Counseling Program, Counselors work as a team with parents, school staff, and the community to create a caring climate and atmosphere. By providing education, prevention, early identification and intervention, School Counselors can help all children to achieve academic success and reach their full potential.
