Hi Poplin Families!
Welcome back to a new school year at Poplin!
This has certainly been my most memorable start to a school year. I hope that you and your children have enjoyed your first few weeks of the 2020/2021 school year.
My name is Jennifer Glahn and I am the school counselor at Poplin Elementary. This is my 14th year working as a school counselor, and my 10th year at Poplin! Wow, time sure does fly! I live in Waxhaw with my husband, Jimmy, and our 2 daughters, McKenna and Ryleigh.
As a school counselor, my job is to work with students, parents/guardians, and school staff to help students be successful in the school setting. I support students in the areas of academic skills, social/emotional skills, and career awareness. This support is provided through whole class lessons, small groups, and individual support.
If I can be of assistance to you or your child(ren) please reach out to me.
I am looking forward to a great year, and getting to know you all.

The role of the school counselor in regards to confidentiality is:
- To support the students right to privacy and protect confidential information received from students, the family, guardian and staff members
- To explain the meaning and limits of confidentiality to students in developmentally appropriate terms
- To provide appropriate disclosure and informed consent regarding the counseling relationship and confidentiality
- To inform students and the family of the limits to confidentiality when: Student poses a danger to self or others, Court ordered disclosure, Consultation with other professionals in support of the student i.e. colleagues, supervisors, treatment teams, and other support personnel
- To keep personal notes separate from educational records and not disclose their contents except when privacy exceptions exist
- To seek guidance from supervisors and appropriate legal advice when their records are subpoenaed
- To assert their belief that information shared by students is “confidential” and should not be revealed without the student’s consent
- To adhere to all laws protecting student records, health information, and special services (i.e., HIPAA, FERPA, IDEA)
