Jean Marie Buckley is highly respected by the education community in her work, as an Educational Counselor serving students and their families. She has done so both inside the school system as an educator, counselor and school leader and within her educational consulting private practice. As a professional educational counselor and consultant, Jean Marie understands the complex components of finding the appropriate school and ensuring that students and their parents understand the necessary educational options as appropriate for their child.
Jean Marie began her career in Silicon Valley after she received her undergraduate, graduate degrees and California counseling credential and then, when she married, moved back to San Mateo County. Her career in the San Mateo Union High School District began and over the course of Jean Marie’s 20-plus year tenure in the District, she developed the School Counseling programs at Capuchino High School, Mills High School and Burlingame High School. Additionally, Jean Marie earned her second Masters degree in Public Administration as well as her California Administrative Services credential and worked with the SMUHSD leadership teams to further develop programs for student development, enrichment and student success.
2007 was a transformative year as Jean Marie launched her full time educational consulting practice, Buckley Education, located in Burlingame yet serving clients globally. The focus of Buckley Education mirrors the professionalism Jean Marie is known for, ethically guiding the educational process. Buckley Education hosts a team of education professionals, guiding families with their relocation needs, elementary, high school and college planning needs and testing needs (Buckley Education offers the SSAT test through a Flex Test option). As Buckley Education evolved, integrating real estate made sense for the needs of the Buckley Education clients.
