Counseling Department

Welcome to the Lafayette Counseling Website. My name is Jenny Schmitz and I began my career as high school counselor at Lafayette during the 2012-2013 school year. I earned my Bachelors Degree at the University of Minnesota-Morris in 1996 and my Masters in Counseling with K-12 Emphasis from the University of North Dakota in 2012. Prior to working at Lafayette, I worked in county social services for sixteen years. The High School Counselor functions as a student advocate within the school community by challenging, encouraging and supporting students. Counseling services include individual and group counseling, individual student planning, student assessments, college and career information, consultation and coordinating referral services. On a day to day basis I am also available to deal with crisis situations that need immediate attention. My duties also include District Assessment Coordinator and District 504 Coordinator.
