WELCOME to the Counselor's Corner!

It is so nice to see you all at OFRS!


My name is Jana Rojas and I am the Elementary Counselor/CST Social Worker at Old Farmers Road School.  My goal is to provide your children with a positive sense of caring, respect, and community at school.  It is a privilege to work with your children, and I  enjoy coming to school every day. OFRS is near and dear to my heart, as I also began my "career" here as a kindergarten student!   

When students feel socially and emotionally competent, they are ready to learn!  For some children, this comes naturally, and for others...they may need a little bit of support and guidance. Please see below for a general idea of what my School-based Counseling and Character Development Program provides for your children:

School-based Counseling: Confidential short-term individual and/or small group counseling for children who may be experiencing difficulty with adjustment, anxiety, behavior, and/or any social-emotional concerns.  Children may be referred for counseling support by their teachers and/or their parents.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child and I will do my best to assist you and your children.


Social Emotional Learning: Classroom lessons aligned with our health education curriculum standards that address school-based issues that kids face every day.  Problem-solving, bullying, friendship skills, and conflict resolution are some of the topics that are covered. 


Child Study Team Social Worker/Pre-School Casemanager:  As a member of the Child Study Team at OFRS, I work in collaboration with the LDT-C and School Psychologist to implement strategies and accommodations to meet the learning needs of all of our students. 


Member of the I&RS Committee:  The Intervention and Referral Services Committee is a collaborative committee comprised of the teacher, student's parents, literacy instructor, LDT-C and school principal.  The purpose of this committee is to brainstorm and implement a plan to best meet the needs of each learner.
