Welcome to Jaindl Elementary Guidance and thank you for visiting my website. The school counseling program at Jaindl is a building-wide program, which includes classroom guidance lessons, classroom meetings, peer mediation, career awareness and exploration, mindfulness, small group counseling, and opportunities for individual counseling.   Another key component to the school counseling program at Jaindl is our School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) program. You will find a pamphlet under my references that explains the SWPBS program in detail. All components of the program are designed to promote and maintain a sense of community and belonging at Jaindl. I have included a couple pages for your review, which provide further information on the role of the school counselor as well as descriptions of the programs that are available at Jaindl, and I do hope to add to this website as the year progresses, so please check back for updates.

This is my 22nd year in the school counseling profession, my 11th year in Parkland, and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to serve in this community. I am also Department Chairperson for Elementary School Counseling in Parkland, and I am honored to serve in this position. I am looking forward to continuing to help our students reach their full potential: Every child is a gift, just waiting to be discovered, and I intend to help our students discover their "spark." :) --- Should you need additional information, please feel free to contact me in the following ways:

Welcome, Mr. Beidleman!

Please help me in welcoming Mr. Todd Beidleman to our Jaindl family! Mr. Beidleman is a part-time counselor at Jaindl and he will be here on Days 2 and 4. You may also see him at Fogelsville this year as part of their counseling team. Mr. Beidleman wanted to share the following letter with you:


Dear Parents/Guardians


My name is Todd Beidleman.  I want to introduce myself as I have recently been hired as a School Counselor at Jaindl Elementary.  As School Counselors, Anastasia Caltabiano and I will be working together to meet the academic, career, and personal/social needs of all students at Jaindl. I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to you as we will be working closely together from now into the foreseeable future. 

With your assistance, it is my goal to put into place a framework that promotes and enhances your child’s success within the three domains of the school realm: academics, personal/social health, and career.  It is paramount that we work together for your child as research shows that a positive school/parent relationship and intervention reciprocation correlates to better outcomes for students.

I have an open door policy for both students and parents.  If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Your child’s success is a priority.

I look forward to collaborating with you and wish you and your child a great year at Jaindl Elementary!          


Todd Beidleman, MS, NCC
