Welcome Miss Jayde!

Miss Jayde is a school counseling intern from Gonzaga University. She will be working alongside Mrs. Martines. Please feel free to introduce yourself to her if you see her around.


As a school counselor, I believe every students has the right to access their education and achieve their highest potentials. It is my mission to help students achieve this through academic, social skills, and post-education support and advocacy. I provide school-based counseling to all students K-5. Students will see me in their classrooms bi-weekly working on character development, team building skills, personal safety, emotional regulation, impulse control, kindness, and much more. You can view the District Elementary Counseling Scope and Sequence under the "Classroom Lessons" tab.

Students may sign up with their teacher to schedule an appointment, a teacher or other school staff may refer a student, or parents may request their child visit with the counselor. If you have any concerns for your student please remember I am always available to you. I value a positive partnership between myself and all stakeholders. I will always communicate with parents and staff about student behavioral and/or social- emotional development, while also protecting student/family confidentiality.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at West Ridge (208-773-7291) or email (cassandrali.martines@sd273.com). You may also complete the Counselor Referral.
