Jen Brooks has been a school counselor at Danz Elementary for 16 years. Jen is proud to be a Danz Dolphin, and feels blessed to work with an amazing team of educators who always have the children’s best interests at heart.
Jen earned her bachelor’s degree from UW-Oshkosh in psychology and Spanish, and her master’s degree in school counseling from Lakeland University. She has many roles in the District, serving as the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) internal facilitator for Tier 1, as well as Tier 2 and 3. PBIS creates a safe and positive learning community and helps students understand what is expected of them at school. She is also the District elementary school counselor liaison, and was very involved in the universal implementation of Zones of Regulation at Danz. Zones of Regulation helps students identify and regulate their feelings and emotions.
One of her favorite events each year is when the Preble graduates (who were former Danz students) walk through the Danz Elementary hallways and are cheered on by current students and staff. She loves to hear them reminisce about their elementary school memories, especially when they recall ways in which she helped them or lessons she taught them.
In her free time, she enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
