Charter School 

About Jo (She/Her/They/Them)

Welcome! My name is Jocelyn McCullough but most of the students know me as Jo or Ms. Jo. I am looking forward to starting my third year working at the San Diego Cooperative Charter School (SDCCS). I cannot wait to see how our community continues to learn and grow together. I have a child that attends our school and I also work on the PSA, currently, as a staff representative. Outside of work, our family can often be found enjoying the calming sights and sounds of a quiet beach or visiting our happy place, Disneyland. We are avid animal lovers, having two dogs, Ahsoka and Rexie, and a ball python, named Anakin. In the past I have worked as a school counselor at St Gregory the Great, a private elementary school in Scripps Poway, and also in the counseling department at San Diego State University. I have additional experience working as a counselor and neuropsychological assessor in and outside of educational settings. I look forward to fostering collaborative relationships with families and staff alike to help support the social, emotional, and in turn, academic success of our students. 

About Ms. Andrea (She/Her)

Hello, all! I am so excited to start this new school year as a counselor! It brings me immense joy to work with kids, as I believe in the power of guidance,empathy,and encouragement to help them thrive academically,emotionally,and socially. With a genuine passion for helping young minds grow, I bring my experience as a parent of two wonderful kids to the table. I understand the challenges and joys that come with growing up, and I am committed to fostering a safe and inclusive environment where students can freely express themselves and explore their potential. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from San Jose State University, and a Master’s degree in Education, Counseling and Guidance with a PPS credential from Point Loma Nazarene University. Previous to working at SDCCS, I worked in many higher education institutions but find myself loving working with younger students. When I’m not busy at school, you’ll often find me enjoying the great outdoors with my family, exploring new food places, attending sporting events, playing soccer, practicing yoga or drinking an iced coffee. As your school counselor, I am here to support you wholeheartedly. Whether you need help with academic challenges, navigating friendships, managing emotions, or setting goals, I am your ally. My goal is to help students develop the skills, confidence, and resilience they need to thrive both inside and outside the classroom. 

About Ms. Rebecca (She/Her)

I moved to San Diego from Colorado in 2006 to attend the University of San Diego (USD). After graduating and realizing my passion for working with students I returned to USD, receiving my Masters in School Counseling and PPS Credential in 2015. In the Spring of 2021, I started as an On-Site Substitute at SDCCS and quickly learned I wanted to make it my long-term home. In the Fall of 2021, I joined the Counseling team, and I am currently the primary Middle School Counselor, and I couldn’t be happier. I am extremely passionate about building rapport and genuinely connecting with students and families to best support them.

In August 2022, I became a mom for the first time to a beautiful daughter named Ocean. She is my pride and joy!
