Ms. Jennifer Collien
Dear Rucker families,
My name is Jennifer Collien, and I'm so happy to be a part of the Rucker family and serve as your child's school counselor. I am starting my 12th year as a school counselor and my second year at Rucker. Prior to Prosper, I was a school counselor for two years in Fairfax Virginia. After two years in Virginia, I moved to Texas and became a counselor in Coppell ISD for six years. After Coppell, I worked in Carollton-Farmer's Branch ISD for two years. I feel very blessed to be part of this amazing school district and grateful that PISD has a strategic plan in place that focuses on the social and emotional health of the students we serve. It is my job, as your child's school counselor, to make sure your child's social and emotional needs are being met. My goal is to provide them with the love, support and care that they deserve!
I'm originally from Wisconsin and a HUGE Green Bay Packers fan!! I received my undergraduate degree at St. Norbert College, in DePere Wisconsin and my graduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. When I'm not working, I love to exercise! Living a healthy lifestyle is very important to me. I enjoy taking cycling classes and zumba classes at the gym. I am also in the process of learning Spanish. I like to find ways to challenge myself and grow as a person, learning Spanish has become my new hobby! I also enjoy traveling, I've been to Colombia twice and truly appreciate the culture and the close family bonds. I also have one dog, Bella, a yorkie that is only 4.4 pounds, she's very tiny and she's my baby!
I truly hope this will be a rewarding year for you and your child, as much as it will be for me! Always feel free to reach out to me at any time, I'm always here to help!
