Gabrielle Degenaar

I have been with Huntsville City Schools since 2005. Prior to working for the school system, I practiced as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am married and have two daughters, one is a freshman at Auburn and the other a Junior at Bob Jones. We are hosting a foreign exchange student from Denmark this year. She is the fourth exchange student we have hosted. We have fostered over 50 puppies.

In my role as school counselor at Jones Valley, I hold classroom guidance lessons every month with each class K-6th. Our topics address issues in three domains: personal/social, academic and career. I also have small groups as well as see students individually. If you have a concern about your student that you feel I can assist with, please contact me. I am here to help students, teachers and parents.
