Sarah Jones, new school counselor for McKinley and Jefferson elementary schools, believes the first years of school make a big difference in the type of person someone will become.

“I remember the impact my K-2 teachers had on me and that’s why I wanted to go into the elementary setting,” Jones said. “I want my kiddos to learn early on, how successful they can be and how they can realize their potential.”

Jones, who grew up in Paola, comes to USD 257 after completing a master’s degree in school counseling. She attended Fort Scott Community College before transferring to Pittsburg State University, where she earned a bachelor of science in psychology and completed her master’s degree in May.
