Ms. Jennifer Schrader
My name is Jennifer Schrader and I am looking forward to being a part of the school counseling team at Lightridge High School. I have worked as a high school counselor for the past 7 years at Freedom High School in South Riding, VA. I am most proud of the connections that I made with students and families, the 6 years of leading the PEER program and the implementation of our Hero in the Hallway performances and the most recent development of our Leadership Academy.
I graduated with my Bachelors of Science from Buffalo State College then moved to Virginia to earn my Masters in School Counseling from George Mason University. Prior to graduate school, I spent 5 years working for Loudoun County as a Teen Programs Specialist. I am currently working toward an administrative degree from GMU in School Leadership which I hope to complete by the summer of 2021.
I live in Aldie with my two children and vast array of pets. I am originally from Buffalo, NY and love my home teams, Go Bills and Sabres! I enjoy all things active; sports, exercise and being outside, always. I can’t wait to get started working with the students and families at Lightridge, Go Lightning!
