 NEW VISION NIGHTHAWKS

WHAT DO SCHOOL COUNSELORS DO?                                     
School Counselors help with prevention and intervention in a school setting. We teach skills such as: communication, conflict-resolution, social skills, how to have meaningful friendships, teamwork, mindfulness, boundaries, etc.  We also work together with parents, teachers, administrators, and the greater community to promote student success and personal well-being. 

MY ROLE AT NVCS:
  • I am here to help support your student's social and emotional needs in order to help them achieve success academically. This may happen through individual meetings, small groups, or classroom activities. Sometimes there are events that occur outside of school that get in the way of student learning, so please know that I am here to help your child deal with those feelings so s/he can get back into class to learn. While I do not replace outside counseling/therapy, I am available to meet briefly with students if they're going through something difficult. Please let me know how I can support your child.
     Other duties/teams:
  • MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) Team: a team designed to work together with parents of students needing higher tiered interventions in order to be more successful academically or behaviorally.
  • Data Team: Teachers, interventionists, counselors, and admin meet regularly to look at student data, individual student progress, and determine interventions and extensions for students in order to be successful at school. At New Vision, we have a great team of staff that take groups of students during our daily Target/ELO (Extended Learning Opportunity) time for interventions and extensions.
  • Section 504 Coordinator: When a team (parents and school staff) determines a student's disability is getting in the way of their learning, we will develop a 504 plan for the student to better access their education. 
  • High school registration: This process starts in November each year for current 8th Grade Students and continues into February. Please contact me if you have any questions about this process.
  • Middle school course scheduling
  • Building Leadership Team

HOW TO CONTACT ME: 

Please contact me at any time if you have questions or you feel I can help support your child. Students are also able to refer themselves to me by asking me or their teacher for a meeting, leaving me a note at the office, or emailing me from home. The easiest way for Parents/Guardians to contact me is through email: (ejobman@nvcs.school). You may also call me during school hours at (970)593-6827, ext.1207. I am also happy to meet with you in person. I am not easily available for drop-in meetings, so please contact me to schedule a meeting if you would like to meet in person. (Please note that conversations regarding student limited to parents or legal guardians.)

GET TO KNOW ME:
  • History at New Vision: Aug. 2006-present, since inception. It's been fun seeing NVCS grow and change and add another campus building!
  • Experienceschool counselor, hospital mental health team,counselor at traumatic brain injury clinic, Assessment Coordinator at MN Workforce Center, career counseling, non-profit Vocational Rehabilitation and Testing, 4Kids Counseling counselor, and private therapist.
  • Family: My husband, Mike, and I met in college in Nebraska. We moved to Minnesota for graduate school and later moved to Colorado to be near family. We have three kiddos who all attended NVCS, Zack, Isaac, and Hannah. Hannah was in the first class that went K through 8 at NVCS!
  • InterestsWhen I'm not at New Vision, I like to read, hike, walk, take photographs, attend sporting events, travel, draw/paint, play the piano, play tennis, and spend time with my family and friends. I only wish I had time to do it all!
  • Why I love NVCS!! :  When we moved to Loveland from Estes Park, NVCS was in the planning stages. We liked the goals and vision of the start-up group and decided this was the best fit for our kids. My husband served on the original Board of Directors. I decided to apply for a job here because of my love of counseling and also my love of kids. New Vision helped our kids to be well-prepared for high school and the greater community through the curriculum and standards, clubs, and service-learning experiences. I love working at New Vision because of the sense of community, the dedicated staff and leadership team, the high standard of behavior students are held to, the individualized learning kids have access to, and the positive environment felt every day. I truly enjoy coming to work. This has become my second home and family!

I look forward to getting to know you and your students. I hope you are enjoying having your kiddos at NVCS as much as I enjoyed having mine here!


Sincerely,

Erin Jobman
