Hello Eagle Family!
It is my joy to serve the students, parents, and staff at George W. Bush Elementary as your school counselor for our third year! This year starts my 15th year in education.
I have been married for 13 years to my wonderful husband, who is also an educator. We have three children, Isabelle, age 11, and Landon, age 7, and our sweet new baby Liam, 8 months.
My heart's desire is to see the students at George W. Bush Elementary succeed in all areas of their lives. We value the teamwork between home and school. We know that to see a student shine we must work hand in hand to ensure their success. We value the partnership between home and school!
The growing of the "whole" child is extremely important to us a GWB. We value and know the impact of teaching social and emotional skills to students. I will visit classrooms each 9 weeks to teach lessons that focus on brain science, mindfulness, empathy, kindness, compassion, respect, grit, and friendship skills. These lessons will reinforce the SEL lessons being taught by your child's teacher. I continually partner with teachers and parents to help meet the needs of students. This looks like small groups with students or meeting with them indiviudally depending on what need they have. The "Mind-Up" curriuclum is one of the resources used to teach the students about mindfulness and the brain. I am also the 504 coordinator for our campus. Feel free to reach out to me anytime with any questions or concerns. I am happy to help!
