Hello Gator Family!
It is with great pleasure that I serve the students, families, and staff of Groves Elementary as your School Counselor! This is the start of my 23rd year in education and my 18th years as a School Counselor. In addition to being a counselor, I have also taught grades 1, 3, and 4. I have been part of Wylie ISD for 19 years and am proud to call Wylie my home.
I am the proud mother of 4 wonderful children: Jacy (22), Logan (18), Tucker (15), and Jaret (13). All of my children have attended Wylie ISD, and Jacy will soon graduate from Texas Tech. I also have the sweetest dog in the world, Hershey, who is a 7 year old Terrier mix & thinks his only job is to protect me! I went to school at Texas A&M University in College Station and am a die-hard Aggie football fan. I also love the Dallas Cowboys!
I am passionate about helping students grow emotionally and socially as they progress through school & prepare for life. I also feel strongly about giving parents tools to help them equip their child/ren with skills they will need to be successful. I use the Mind-up Curriculum for my guidance lessons, as well as literature from Julia Cook and other authors. I try to share information whenever possible on my Gator Counselor's Page on Facebook. I am also the 504 & Homeless Campus Coordinator and the liaison for PALs & MENTORS. If you have any questions or would like to talk to me, please contact me to schedule an appointment.
