Jennifer Brown, Counselor

My name is Ms. Brown. I am the counselor at Worsham Elementary. I have been at Worsham Elementary for thirteen years! Following my student teaching with Aldine, I graduated from Iowa State University in 1998 with a BS in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education/Unified with a specialization in Spanish. I was hired at Worsham and taught Special Education/Resource for four years and Kindergarten one and a half years before attaining my Masters of Arts in Counseling from Prairie View A&M University. I stepped in to the counseling position in March 2004. As the counselor I interact with all the students, teachers, staff, and community. I facilitate many activities on campus, such as C.H.I.C.K.E.N. Club events, SNAPP, and GT/ACC Programs, to name a few. Our morning announcements focus on social skills and I hope to make a positive influence through appropriate modeling of the social behavior as well as through classroom guidance lessons. I look forward to getting to know everyone as we navigate our way through this school year!
