Greetings JJES,

I am so excited about the opening of our new school. My goal is to ensure that every student has access to a comprehensive program that provides academic, personal/social and career support. I enjoy helping students develop skills that can be used throughout the lifespan. I believe that education is the fuel for success and that all students have the ability to succeed! I earned by Master of Education in counseling and human development at George Mason University. In my spare time I enjoy reading, roller skating and exploring new and exciting places. I have traveled around the world to more than 20 countries and have visited every major city in the United States. I enjoy sharing my experiences with students. I want every student to have an awesome school year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or phone with your questions and concerns.

Hello! My name is Joy Steen and I am a Professional School Counselor who was born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill- (go heels!) and remained in the Durham/Chapel Hill area until 2010 when I moved to Washington, DC to attend George Washington University. I graduated with my Master’s in School Counseling from GWU in 2012 and worked at a public school in Washington, DC until 2017. I then moved to Tucson, AZ where I worked in an elementary school until moving to Fairfax, VA this past summer. I love the Fall and am happy to be back on the East Coast. I look forward to working with the students and families at Jenkins Elementary and can't wait to see all the successes our students have this year!
