Mrs. Jennifer Clifton - Intervention Specialist

Welcome to the Eagle's Nest!!

Hello! I'm Mrs. Jennifer Clifton and I run the Eagle's Nest Intervention Program at Golden Hills School.  I've worked in Mental Health for fourteen years, and I have been the Intervention Specialist at Golden Hills for eleven years. I have a BA in Psychology from San Diego State University. I'm a Certified Life Coach, have been trained in Behavior Modification, and I am a wife and mother of two. I love working with kids and helping them grow and overcome obstacles. 

Here are the Eagle's Nest Purpose and Goals:

To assist children in working on the behaviors that impede their learning, affect their relationships, and cause problems at home and at school.

To support children who are grieving or going through difficult circumstances.

To encourage children to achieve their goals, and to be as successful as they can be in their classrooms, at home, and in their interpersonal relationships.
