Gabrielle Degenaar

I have been an elementary counselor with HCS since 2005. This year marks my 7th year at Jones Valley and I am thrilled to be part of Team JVE. I am married and have two daughters. My oldest is a freshman at Auburn and my youngest is a junior in high school. This year we are hosting our 4th foreign exchange student- a girl from Denmark. Our previous foreign exchange students were from Germany, Italy and Norway. My daughters and I travelled to Norway this past summer to visit our former student and experience her beautiful country. My family and I also foster puppies for a local rescue. We have been doing this a little over a year and have helped over 50 puppies find loving homes. We foster failed on one so now we have three fur babies of our own. Our favorite family past time is watching Auburn football. We also love traveling, amusement parks and haunted houses.
