My name is Jessica Pritchett and I am from Tea, South Dakota. All of my grandparents are farmers, so I grew up with a love and respect for animals and nature. After graduating from Tea Area High School, I moved to Mankato, MN to study psychology and music at Minnesota State University, Mankato. It was during my college experiences that I discovered my life’s passion of working with and supporting students and families.
After graduating from MSU, I then moved to Minneapolis, MN for a few years to work in the Minneapolis Public School District as a behavioral support professional. While in Minneapolis, I started working on my master’s degree in school counseling at Capella University.
It is my personal mission to do everything that I can to help students be successful in our ever-changing world. I’m so excited to be a part of the Hendricks Public School family, and I look forward to getting to know the students and the community!
To include a little more about myself, in my free time I enjoy reading, working out, and spending time with friends and family. I have two bunnies named Delilah and Finnegan, and I also really like plants. Most of my windows are filled with plants, and I hope to have a large vegetable and flower garden someday!
