  • Nǐ Hǎo Jie Ming Tigers, I'm glad you're here! My name is Krista Henke, though kids call me Ms. Krista. I am thrilled to join Jie Ming Mandarin Immersion Academy this year to support students, families, and staff as a school counselor. I get to work with all kids and families in kindergarten and first grade!


    I will teach classroom counseling lessons each week in your child's class. Topics include: social skills, bullying prevention, calming strategies, skills for learning, college and career readiness, personal safety, and much more! I also offer small group counseling experiences and one-on-one support to kids and families.
