Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Jared J. Gonsalves

My name is Jared Gonsalves and I have been a counselor in Middlesex County for almost a decade, specializing in Middle and High School education. 

Upon graduating from South Amboy High School in 2003, I moved to Santa Barbara, California to further my education at Santa Barbara City College (SBCC). After furthering my education on the West Coast, I returned to NJ and attended Kean University (NJ) to complete my Bachelors degree in Psychology/History and subsequently, my Masters of Arts in Counselor Education. 

My passion is directly connected to the people I meet and the students I am able to connect with on a daily basis. Relationships are extremely important to me and as I work with the high school demographic, I intend to stress the importance of that connection related to their academic and social development. I am an advocate for my students. However, my goal is to have them advocate for themselves as they inch closer to graduation.

As the Student Assistance Coordinator (SAC), I am able to assist my fellow counselors in their specific school counselor roles, but I am also able to provide further assistance with issues that interfere with student success that come from outside the school environment, such as alcohol/drug use, domestic situations, etc.

Mi español aún no es fluido, así que hable despacio cuando deje un mensaje. Me comunicaré con los padres/tutores por mensaje de texto a través de Google Voice (908) 299-6716

I am ALWAYS available by email (, but if you need to speak with me directly, please call my office at 732-376-6030 ext. 23432.
