Hi!  My family and I feel very blessed to live in Sonora and I love my job as the counselor for Sonora Elementary!   A little about myself... I graduated from Angelo State University in 2002 with a Bachelor degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and teaching certification in elementary education.  I then went on to receive my Master of Education degree and certification in School Counseling in 2006.  
As the school counselor, I teach character building lessons in all K-2 classrooms.   During that time, we focus on skills that will help the students be successful both in the classroom and in social situations.  Topics include listening skills, study skills, friendship, kindness, responsibility, and honesty- just to name a few!  I also teach social groups throughout the year and visit 3rd - 5th grade classrooms as needed.  When I'm not working directly with the students, I am behind the scenes coordinating UIL Academics and all state assessments.  In addition, I serve on the Sutton County Child Welfare Board and the Sutton County Food and Resource Center Board.  

 I also want to be a resource for parents when they have concerns for their children.  Please feel free to call, email, or drop by my office any time!

I'm looking forward to a great year!  Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you - I'll be more than happy to help!
