Meet Light Farms' Counselor
Hello, my name is Jill Van Dyke and I am so excited to be the school counselor here at Light Farms Elementary this year. I have been in education for the past 18 years. I have had the wonderful opportunity of being able to teach Pre-K, Kindergarten, 3rd grade, 4th grade and 5th grade. My love for helping children inspired me to go on to get my Master’s Degree in School Counseling at Dallas Baptist University.
I was born and raised in the Southern Suburbs of Chicago, Illinois and moved to McKinney, TX 11 years ago. I have been married to my wonderful husband Pete for the past 23 years, and we have 2 beautiful daughters. My oldest daughter is a kindergarten teacher, and my youngest is a sophomore at the University of Arkansas. We also have three furry friends, Bailey, Luna and Brantley.
It truly is an honor and privilege to get to serve the students, staff and parents at Light Farms Elementary. I am looking forward to partnering with all of you to make this year the very best. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or just to say hi!
