About Adolphus

Jenna Jarisch

Hello Adolphus Bulldogs! My name is Jenna Jarisch and I am so excited to become a part of the Adolphus community as a counselor this coming school year! I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Houston- Victoria, and I earned my master’s degree in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University.

 I have been teaching for the past 11 years and this will be my first year as a counselor. I started my career in education in Victoria ISD at Chandler Elementary. I taught Kindergarten there for two years. I then moved to Barrington Place Elementary in Fort Bend ISD where I worked for 9 years, teaching 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades.

Education and teaching have always been passions of mine. During my teaching career I realized the importance of social-emotional development in children and my desire to help children in this area in particular. This is what prompted the change to the counseling profession!

 My goal this year is to develop and implement a comprehensive counseling and guidance program that meets the needs of all students at Adolphus Elementary. 

 On a personal note- I am happily married and have two beautiful children, a 6 year old daughter named Madelyn and a 4 year old son named Ian. I also have two sweet dogs named Lady and Jasper. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, baking, crafting, and exercising.

Hello Bulldog Family,

My name is Suzanne Lowe and I am one of the counselors here at Adolphus.  I am so excited to join this amazing school this year.  I have been in education for 17 years as a teacher and this is my first year as a counselor. I earned my undergraduate degree from Texas State University, and my masters in school counseling is from The University of St. Thomas.    I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grade and loved each one for different reasons.  My passion is for helping kids to grow socially and emotionally and so I decided to switch my role to counselor!!  I look forward to building relationships with students, staff, and families this year.  On a personal note,  I have been married for five years to my husband David and we share three boys between us: Michael is 22, Luke is 12, and Caden is 11.   When I am not at work I am usually at baseball with my son Luke.  I love to be outdoors, especially when it involves being near the water.  Here is to a great year!!!! Go Bulldogs!!!!

What does a school counselor do?

My goal at Adolphus is to make sure that all of our students are being academically and socially successful at our school.  I collaborate with teachers and parents to facilitate a positive school environment.  I also strive to assist struggling learners and use my experience in working with children to help ensure that their needs are being met.

I will present monthly guidance lessons in the classroom.  The lessons cover a variety of topics related to character development, academic success, goal setting, and decision making.  The topics are beneficial to the social and academic development of the students.  This is also an important time for me to get to know your student and build a positive relationship with them. 

It is going to be a great year becoming an official

No Place for Hate

No Place For Hate

Adolphus has been officially recognized as a “No Place for Hate” campus.  If you have lunch with your child, you will see our banners! Our goal is to be recognized again this year.  My 5th grade students will make up the “No Place for Hate Coalition.” They will be receiving help from 3rd and 4th grade Kindness Club members.  These two groups will promote school-wide activities that encourage kindness, acceptance of differences, and respect for others. They will be working hard but we need everyone to do their part to make our school a welcoming place for all.
