Hello Hafen Parents!

Welcome to the Counselor’s Corner!!

Hi!!! My name is jeff Corbett, the school counselor at Hafen Elementary.  I earned a B.S. in Human Development from Azusa Pacific University, and a M.S. in Educational Counseling from National University.  I am married to my wonderful wife, and we have two boys together.   My goal is to help your student be the best that they can be!  I want them to know that they are special, unique, important, and empowered to be whatever they want to be. Feel free to contact me at at

This page provides you with information about the school counseling program, and resources.

Mission: School Counselors facilitate the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. School Counselors are integral members of the instructional team. They directly impact student achievement by delivering comprehensive services that meet the needs of the 21st century school community.  

What does this mean for your child? This means that I pay close attention to every student in the building and how he/she 'connects' to his/her education and therefore achieves to the maximum level possible.  I support your child to creatively problem-solve any issues that may (temporarily or otherwise) pose an obstacle to the learning process and your child's academic achievement. 

Vision: Professional School Counselors are uniquely trained leaders who promote success for all students. They collaborate with school stakeholders using data‐driven decisions to facilitate the success of the 21st century learner in an ever‐changing society. As a result the student will:

  • achieve to his/her maximum potential
  • demonstrate academic, career, personal/social problem-solving skills
  • recognize and appreciate individual and cultural differences
  • develop communication, citizenship and employability skills to make positive contributions to the community
  • access human and technological resources for support and information 

 What is a School Counselor?

 I am a (minimum Master's level) certified, trained, and caring professional who works with all students, parents, teachers, staff and the community, in order for every student to achieve academic and social success. School Counseling services are delivered in four specific ways:


Classroom Counseling Curriculum- I teach classroom lessons to all students on topics such as social/emotional, academic, and career needs.

Individual Student Planning- assisting students with goal formation/planning (behavioral, academic, etc.)

Responsive Services- meeting immediate student needs: counseling, crisis intervention, consultation, referral, and peer mediation.

System Support- schoolwide program planning and implementation (PBIS), consulting with other professionals, coordination of various supports for students and families.
