School Counseling

Welcome! My name is Jennifer Dunn and I am Pate Elementary’s School Counselor.  This is my fourth year of having the privilege to serve as Pate’s School Counselor. I love working with the wonderful faculty, staff, and families of Pate Elementary and am looking forward to getting to know you and your child!

I grew up in a small town in southeastern Illinois then moved to Chicago to attend college at Loyola University Chicago.  I graduated from Loyola with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication.  I lived in Chicago for 8 years then decided to move to South Carolina to obtain my Master in Education degree in Counselor Education-School Counseling.  I graduated from Clemson in 2011. I am certified by South Carolina for School Counseling in grades K-12.  My husband and I live in Hartsville with our daughter, Ella and our three-legged dog, Mitra. 

As a School Counselor, I am your child’s advocate.  I am here to help with personal/social, academic, and career awareness concerns. Please do not hesitate to contact me.  My door is always open to you.  You may contact me by phone (843.398.2421) or email ([email protected]).

Let’s have a great school year!
