Counselor Corner

  • It is my pleasure to welcome you to Wooden Elementary!  I LOVE being an elementary school counselor.  This is where the action is!

    As a professional school counselor at Wooden Elementary, I am dedicated to empowering EVERY student to achieve academic success, personal growth, social growth, and emotional well being. By providing a comprehensive counseling program, all of the needs and goals of all our students are addressed. Collaborating with teachers, I inspire students to be fair, empathic, responsible, respectful, caring, and productive citizens. 

    I love teaching our Social Emotional Lessons to all of our classes in a large group setting. 

    Our SEL topics include:

    • Friendship
    • Communication
    • Growth Mindset
    • Bullying Awareness
    • Resilience
    • Personal Safety
    • Drug/Alcohol Awareness
    • Emotional Awareness
    • Social Skills
    • Empathy/Compassion
    • Respect
    • Responsibility

    I also am available to help with short-term counseling interventions for things such as anxiety, fear, school resistance, and family issues. If it is an issue that cannot be solved short-term, I am happy to refer your student to a qualified professional counselor/therapist.

    My job also includes individual counseling, small group counseling, and lunch bunch.  I am the STAAR testing coordinator for Wooden. I head the RTI committee and serve on the District Advisory Committee, School Leadership Team, and School Improvement Plan Committee.

    I am here to help all students, parents, and teachers.  If I can serve you or assist you in any area, please feel free to contact me.

    Wishing everyone a truly blessed year full of opportunity, success, and much happiness!
