       Mr. Jamerson, Counselor

    My name may sound familiar to some because I am returning to the Petaluma City Schools district after being away for a year in another district as a school counselor in alternative education. I previously worked at Casa Grande High School as their College and Career Specialist. I really enjoy being a  counselor in alternative education. As a school counselor, I aspire to be the type of counselor that I wish I had when I was in high school. I understand first hand that many students can benefit tremendously from education that is approached in a different way.

    Biography:  Ms. Kesseru earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from San Jose State University so naturally, Art is one of her main interests. Gardening is a passion - try to check out the California Native Habitat garden which her students installed on the PJHS campus. She also loves ice cream and her two cats - not necessarily in that order.

She was the first woman in Sonoma County to receive a nomination or a dual nomination to both the Air Force and Naval Academies in 1986. She is the first woman from Sonoma County to attend Annapolis.  She has always had a deep passion and desire to spend her life in a career where she can be of service to others. After five years of traditional teaching positions, she came to Valley Oaks in the fall of 2003, where she finds continual inspiration and delight in her meaningful interactions with Valley Oaks students and families. She taught summer school for 7 years for Santa Rosa City Schools and 2 years for Valley Oaks.  Aside from her primary goal of giving students a strong foundation in science, she encourages all students to participate in community service activities and to strive to develop their personal character.
