About Mrs. Estes:

I am very happy to be part of the Jane Edwards Elementary staff and look forward getting to know each and every one of you! Before Jane Edwards Elementary School, I was a middle school counselor near Greenville, SC for three years. I was born in Pennsylvania and moved to the Chicago area when I was in High School. I have a Master's in Counseling Education from Clemson, and a Bachelor's of Science in Psychology and Special Education from James Madison University. My favorite hobbies are spending time with my family (dog included!), traveling, reading, swimming and hiking.
