My name is Becky Luetje, and I have had the great fortune to be the Counselor at JAJ since 2014! I am both a licensed school counselor and a licensed teacher, with a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls, and a a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota (go Gophers!). To me, the best part of being a teacher was listening to kids, teaching them skills for getting along with others, and how to solve problems. Now, this is what I do every day as a school counselor. I love my job!
I have lived in the Twin Cities my entire life. Besides being at JAJ, my favorite thing to do is hang out with my family! My husband, Dan, and I are the parents of 2 adult children, Lissa and Henry. They keep me laughing, and I enjoy every minute I get to spend with them. I also enjoy reading a good book (when I can stay awake) and connecting with the rest of my family, especially my parents, who live in Coon Rapids, where I grew up. We have a cat named Princess, and a dog named Red.
I am proud to be a part of the JAJ school community. We are strong. We work together, learn together, and support one another. I can't think of a place I would rather be!
