Jean Piermattei
I am the school counselor for grades K-2. This is my fourth year at River Gate Elementary. I've worked supporting children and families for the past 25 years, including elementary counseling, disability services, and as an early intervention specialist. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Virginia Tech and a Master's in Education degree from George Mason University. I am the mother of two children and spend my time away from work supporting their musical and athletic interests.
