Matt Jacobson

Elementary School Counselor


Mr. Jacobson 

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year my name is Matt Jacobson.  This will be my fifth year at Bangor and I continue to feel blessed to work in this school district, community, and for the wonderful people I have met along the way.  This will be my 12th year as a school counselor and 15th year in education.  I have a master's degree in school counseling from Concordia University and two bachelor degrees one in Health Promotion/Wellness from the University of Stevens Point and Human Services from Upper Iowa University.  My wife, Dawn and I have two children that we love spending time outdoors with going on adventures.

As always if you have any questions/concerns please feel free to email, call, and or schedule an appointment to meet with me.  I am here to help your child be successful in the classroom and in life.

The We Do Listen Foundation has created a series of books to teach children important life lessons. Their website has animated books, games, songs, and many other free activities for your child. A great website to explore!

Julia Cook Books

Julia Cook's books are a cornerstone of the guidance lessons I use at Bangor Elementary. A former teacher and school counselor, Julia writes books for children that let them laugh while learning to solve their own problems, use better behavior, and develop healthy relationships. I am a huge fan of Julia Cook's books and use them for all grade levels. I highly encourage you to check out her books for yourself.
