Jenelle Sigler - K-12 Counselor

Hello Bridgewater-Emery Families!

I am excited to be a part of the Bridgewater-Emery team and look forward to getting to know everyone as the school year continues! I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago and I have been in the area for the past 6 years. I spend my free time walking and playing with my black Labrador Retriever, Bruce. I also enjoy traveling, spending time with my friends and family and trying new things.

 

As the school counselor, I am here to ensure that every student is successful at school socially, emotionally and academically. Throughout the school year, I will be supporting students by visiting every classroom with regular lessons, getting to know students through small groups and meeting with students individually.

Ways I Can Help Your Student

  • Working out friendship problems

  • Setting goals

  • Feeling good about themselves

  • Family Changes

  • Adjusting to a new school

  • Learning how to make decisions

  • Managing feelings (stress, anger, sadness, etc.)
