Biography

Hello,


My name is Jennifer Heckel, and I am excited to announce that I will be the new counselor at both Falcon Hill and Red Mountain Ranch Elementary schools. I cannot wait to meet you all! To give you some information about myself, I was born and raised here in Arizona. My husband and I love animals! We have a yellow lab, a bunny, and a tortoise. In our spare time, we enjoy getting together with our families and traveling. Disneyland is our absolute favorite!


As for my schooling, I graduated from ASU in May of 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication, and I graduated from the University of the Southwest in May of 2019 with a Master’s degree in Education, with concentration in School Counseling. I completed my practicum and internship at Highland Junior High School, and my experiences there further strengthened my desire to be a Professional School Counselor. I have worked in Early Childhood Education over the past nine years and am elated to begin this new journey with two wonderful elementary schools. It will be my first year working for Mesa Public Schools, and I am anxious to begin this next chapter of my life! I look forward to guiding each and every student in their academic, career, and social/emotional development. 

 

Thank you for welcoming me into your schools! I am thrilled to be a part of the Falcon Hill and Red Mountain Ranch communities!
