All About Me:
Thanks for visiting my website! I am so excited for another wonderful school year at Bransford Elementary!!!
I graduated from University of North Texas with a Masters degree in Counseling. I am a certified school counselor for grades K-12. I received my Bachelor's degree from University of Texas at Austin in Elementary Education. This is my second year as the school counselor at Bransford Elementary. I am thrilled to be a part of such a supportive, friendly, learning environment! This is my 10th year in education and I have classroom experience teaching 2nd and 3rd grade. I believe in relationship building and teaching through the heart. My passion lies in building strong moral character. Lessons based on kindness, empathy, self-esteem, respect, responsiblity, acceptance and trust are guides for children to develop bright futures.
The elementary level sets the foundation to develop and nurture integrity and empathy in order to connect and reach out with compassion. Being connected to oneself and others is important in maintaining a sense of security and safety. As a counselor, my goal is to provide children with guidance and support through positive interaction. As we continue to build a strong community, I will strive to make Bransford a place where children feel safe learning and growing and adults feel welcome!
