School CounselorHansen Elementary
- Role: Teacher
Hello, my name is Jen Alexander, but everyone calls me Miss Jen. I am a school counselor and play therapist with over 15 years experience as well as a mom, author and someone who appreciates all things creative. I am especially passionate about being a leader in the movement to create trauma-sensitive schools. Together, we do this by helping all students feel safe and successful within a school culture marked by positive relationships and an intentional focus on developing social/emotional as well as academic skills. To learn more about what one part of trauma-sensitivity looks like at Hansen, check out the video our third graders made in 2015. It's all about mindfulness!
