Jeff Bayard

School Counselor



Student Support

Hi! My name is Jeff Bayard, and I am Merrill’s new School Counselor for the 2022-23 school year. I am originally from Minnesota but have been in Colorado for seven years. I love being a part of the Merrill Family and all the new faces I’m getting to know. I just graduated with my Master’s in Counseling this past spring from the University of Colorado Denver. While completing my studies, I worked as a Special Education Paraprofessional at North High School. In my free time, I snowboard and both play and watch a lot of soccer. I also love playing the piano and doing graphic design for friends and family. Hablo español también si necesitan algo!
