Mrs. Jessica Ballester

Director of Student Services

It is a pleasure to work with staff, parents, and students within the East Rutherford Community in order to provide assistance and interventions to help all students become successful learners.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and received a Master of Social Work Degree at the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership at New Jersey City University.

In 2001, I began in the East Rutherford School District as a Social Worker on the Child Study Team.  In 2009 I transitioned into the role of Director of Student Services.  In addition to my role with the Child Study Team I serve as the Anti-Bullying Coordinator, Homeless Liaison, and Title I Coordinator.

I welcome parent involvement and look forward to hearing from you throughout the school year.

Please feel free to contact me at any time.
