Counselor Intern

Dear Ramsey School Community,


I wanted to take an opportunity to introduce myself as I will be spending the next 5ish weeks at Ramsey! My name is Jordanna Schluttner and I am a school counseling intern working with/shadowing Mr. Nigatu. I am completing my masters program from the University of Wisconsin - River Falls and will graduate this upcoming May. As an intern, I am learning from practicing school counselors, applying my skills to real-life situations, while building relationships with peers and students as well as collaborating with stakeholders.


I am very excited to have the opportunity to spend this time at Ramsey and look forward to meeting and supporting your students. If you have any questions or need to contact me, please feel free to do so at: jschluttner.coin@spps.org.


Thank you!

Jordanna
