    Where do I start? I always say that PS 16 has the absolute, best guidance counselor in all of NYC. Jen shows up every day after her full-time job of raising her own 3 children, with a smile on her face and an attitude that every day is an opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of our babies at PS 16. She is a champion for students and believes that all adults in the school building have an awesome responsibility to help students become the best version of themselves. She arrives early and stays late and makes the social and emotional health of our students her top priority. I know that I can ALWAYS count on her for anything I need and it is always taken care of and followed through in a thorough manner. Jen has a great rapport with the parents and guardians and serves as a great resource to them. I am beyond grateful and proud to have Jen on our team. She is comepletly deserving of this recognition. Sky is the limit for such an amazing guidance counselor!!

    Congratulations on well-deserved appreciation! Jennifer, you are a thoughtful, kind and generous individual both in your personal and professional life. Your dedication, commitment and love for the students is admirable. You have a way of making sure every child feels special from providing snacks if they are hungry, sending care packages to students that have transferred schools to remembering and celebrating their birthdays! Your endless care for the students is truly inspirational! I’m so grateful that we’re roomies♥

    PS 16 has become your home away from home. You treat every child as if they were your own and honor them with respect and kindness. As our guidance counselor you work nonstop to give our students the social skills they need to survive in and out of the classroom; keeping their bellies full and their thoughts focused. Outside of the guidance area, I have heard the compassionate words you share and seen the hugs you give to ensure that every child here at PS 16 is empowered to feel and do their best. Congratulations and thank you Jen. You are truly a role model for our PS 16 community!

    I knew from the start when you were doing your internship with me that you were going to be a wonderful counselor. You were a self starter and were able to make lasting connections with so many of our students. I remember telling you that even though I was mentoring you, you did do much to make my job easier. Your dedication to your students throughout your career has been exemplary. I am so proud of you and so glad we have remained friends all these years.

Your commitment and dedication to your students is such a great example of what is possible by your faith and belief that you can make a difference in your student’s lives. I am amazed how much of an impact you have made on the people around you, lifting up so many who are in despair. I know its not easy to go everyday and push so hard, but you always say how much its worth it. Thank you for all you do and being such great example to our children.
