Mrs. Hotz


My name is Jacqueline Hotz and I am the School Counselor at Walnut Hill Elementary.  I am so lucky to be able to work with every teacher, every classroom, and every student.  I love being the School Counselor at Walnut Hill and this will be my 13th year here!

I will be going in to all of the classrooms every other week to teach a Guidance lesson about academic, social/emotional, and college/career development.  I visit with students individually and in small groups on topics such as attendance, friendship, study skills, and loss. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help your child have a successful school year.  I am here to support students and families. 

At Walnut Hill, we encourage College Bound Expectations using the No Excuses University (NEU) philosophy.  NEU believes that every child deserves the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares them for college or post-secondary success.  When schools exhibit a culture of universal achievement by believing in students, they collaborate around that belief.  During collaboration, they align their standards as a team.  As teams align standards, they need to assess the standards and manage the data.  Then, and only then, can they pursue meaningful interventions with students. 

Every student has the opportunity to excel in college, career, and life!
