Jessica Nies - Counselor
About Me: I have lived in Aurora for over 20 years and have worked as a School Counselor since 2012. I earned my Master's degree in School Counseling from University of Phoenix and love to learn about all the new trends and developments in the Counseling field.
I am the 8th grade counselor and 7th grade counselor for team Thunderbird. Middle school is an important and critical age for personal and social development, my goal is to help students through these years. I provide individual, group, and classroom lessons focusing on personal, emotional, social, career and academic needs.
My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by creating a safe and positive learning environment while focusing on the academic, personal, social and emotional needs of the students. My community needs me to do my job.
