TERRELL HIGH SCHOOL
Meet Our Counselors
Hello! My name is Liz Diaz, and I am very excited to start my 7th year in Terrell ISD. I am the Terrell High School Counselor for the Alpha P - Z and I am also the Dual Credit Coordinator. This is my third year as a school counselor at Terrell High School. I was previously the Terrell High School Head Volleyball Coach, and PE teacher at Terrell HS and Wood Elementary. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Kinesiology from Texas Lutheran University, and immediately attended Texas Woman's University to earn my Master of Science in Kinesiology. During my time coaching at Terrell HS, I started on a new path to pursue my school counselor certifications, and completed my coursework from Angelo State University. Pursuing a career in education was never my intention, or on my radar, but it became very clear that this was where I was meant to be. This will be my 18th year in education, and I cannot believe how many wonderful memories I have gained over the years, and how blessed I am to have found where I truly belong. I am dedicated to being an advocate for our students, and want to help provide them with the same variety of opportunities that were extended to me. I look forward to the many adventures and various journeys we will travel, and look forward to being able to work side by side with our students as they navigate through high school, and prepare for their life once they graduate. In my spare time, I enjoy sitting out on the dock with my two dogs at my lake house, baking, going to movies, and traveling to San Antonio to spend time with my family.
O-Z Counselor & Lead Counselor
Hi there! My name is Mrs. Heather Crumpton and I am the Terrell High School Counselor for Alpha A-Gi. I have been in high school education for over 9 years, and received my Undergraduate at the University of Arkansas (Go Razorbacks!) and my Masters of Counseling at Amberton University. As a counselor, my goals are to promote student’s self-esteem and empower them to use his/her strengths to become their own best advocate. I help my students to realize their potential by focusing on their accomplishments, build on their past successes, and encourage them to achieve their goals. By focusing on student’s strengths and successes, I encourage each student to recognize their potential and I want to make sure that they understand each student is valuable, vital and are unique individuals. I look forward to an exciting school year as we work together towards success in high school and beyond.

THE ROLE OF A COUNSELOR
First and foremost, counselors are advocates for all individuals (students, staff, and parents). Our goal is to foster effective communication between the home and school.
Providing guidance content in a systematic way to all students. Promoting awareness, skill development, and application of skills needed in everyday life through classroom guidance lessons.
Addressing the immediate concerns of students through prevention and intervention.
Assisting students in monitoring and understanding their own development. Addressing educational, career, and personal-social goals.
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.
