Meet Light Farms' Counselor
Hello! My name is Jill Van Dyke and I am truly honored to be the counselor of Light Farms Elementary. This is my second year at Light Farms Elementary and I am so excited to be able to serve the students, staff and parents in this great community.
A little bit about me, I have been in education for 19 years. Over the past 19 years, I have worked with so many wonderful students ranging from Pre-K all the way up to 5th grade. My love for helping children inspired me to go on to get my Master’s Degree in School Counseling at Dallas Baptist University.
I was born and raised in the Southern Suburbs of Chicago, Illinois and moved to McKinney, TX 12 years ago. I have been married to my wonderful husband Pete for the past 25 years, and we have 2 beautiful daughters. My oldest daughter is a kindergarten teacher, and my youngest is a junior at the University of Arkansas. We also have three furry friends, Bailey, Luna and Brantley.
I am looking forward to a fantastic year with you all! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for assistance. Wishing everyone a wonderful 2018-19 school year!
