    Jessica Golden-Harrington

    My name is Jessica Golden-Harrington and I am a certified School Counseling Director and Special Educator. My years as a student at UNH solidified my desire to be a lifelong learner.

    I started my career as a paraeducator in a traditional public school and have worked as counselor, special educator, and school administrator in a variety of settings including public schools. private therapeutic day schools, and Chartered Public Schools. I am the former Assistant Director and Head of Counseling at Academy for Science and Design Chartered Public School. Currently, I have started my own professional adventure launching Golden Education Consulting & Training. 

    I believe that student success starts and grows from a place of empathy, compassion, and care.
