Mrs. Jinelle Schaeffer

I am here to help our scholars find their strengths and grow positive mindsets. I have taught for over 14+ years in grades 3rd-college and counseled HS and/or Elementary for 7+ years.

I am a lifelong learner and want our scholars to have every opportunity to grow. I am working on my doctorate in School Psychology and a graduate certificate in Play Therapy, as well as learning how to use Mindful Moving.

I am fortunate to be Arizona homegrown, and spent most of my teaching/counseling career in and around Pinal County. Currently my husband and I live in Coolidge, AZ. My daughter is all grown up and lives with her husband in Scottsdale. We like to watch basketball, hang out with family and friends, playing with our 2 dogs & 2 cats, and getting outdoors when we can. I am grateful to be here, Maricopa Elementary is an amazing place!
