My name is Mrs. Coffey and I am the School Counselor at TJ. I'm so happy that you stopped by and I hope that you are able to find the information or support you are looking for. The aim of this website is to help you to get to know your school counselor a little better, give you a look at some of the exciting things happening in the school counseling program at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, and to provide you with resources and information to use at home and in your child's day to day life. I hope that you enjoy your experience and please feel free to reach out to me at any time!
