Meet Our Counselor

Hey Tigers! I am so excited to be coming back to JWL as the school counselor for a second year! The 20-21 school year marks my 16th year in education with the past 8 years as a counselor. I am blessed to be able to say that I started my education as a kindergartener in Terrell ISD and I started my professional education career in Terrell ISD, my first 6 years being at JWL as a 3rd grade teacher and reading specialist and then another two at GWE as a 1st and 2nd grade teacher. I am also blessed to be able to say that I LOVE my job! I get to live out my passion for helping kids every day. 


I know that we are currently living in unprecedented times and with that comes a lot of worry and anxiety. I am here for you and your Tigers. Please feel free to reach out for any assistance you need or to ask ANY questions. I am fully committed to being on this journey with you and to see you through this tough time. 


Again, my purpose as the school counselor is to be your supporter and number 1 fan. Please let me know how I can help you and your family!

Responsive Services

Addressing the immediate concerns of students through prevention and intervention.


Individual Planning

Assisting students in monitoring and understanding their own development. Addressing educational, career, and personal-social goals.


System Support

Support activities and services including professional/staff development, campus improvement plan, parent education, campus decision-making, committees, etc.



Planning/Coordinating special events, supervisory duties, administrative duties, etc.



TISD counselors visit every classroom monthly during the school year. Character Education is integrated into the curriculum. There are six pillars of good character: respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, caring, fairness, and citizenship throughout the school year. Counselors also discuss personal space, emotions, secrets, bullying, diversity, word choices and sharing.
