Hello, I’m Kadie Jarvis, and I am thrilled to be the counselor at Viburnum Junior/Senior High. I have a master’s degree in school counseling and hold an active secondary ELA teaching degree. I have several years of experience in teaching and counseling. My passion for helping others was ignited by my challenging childhood. My experiences have given me a deep understanding of the importance of mental health and well-being in achieving academic success.

I am committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for my students. I will always be available to lend an ear, offer guidance, and help students navigate the ups and downs of high school life. I will move forward as a counselor with an approachable demeanor and empathetic nature, allowing students to feel comfortable sharing their struggles and concerns.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and practicing yoga, all of which I incorporate into my counseling approach. I believe in the power of mindfulness and self-care and encourage my students to find healthy ways to manage stress and anxiety. I am dedicated to ensuring that every student at Iron Co. C4 has access to the support they need to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
