Hello Friends and Family of Westwind!

What a privilege it is to serve as counselor and 504 coordinator for Westwind! I truly believe we have the most wonderful students on this side of the earth! My Tiger journey began in August of 2012. Prior to then, I was taught at a local charter school and worked as a counselor for South Plains College. I attended Texas Tech University for both my bachelor's and Master's degree.

My pride and joy is my family. I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful children. I spend most of my spare time bonding and building memories with them! I also enjoy creating and editing videos!
 
I want to take the opportunity to describe the role of a school counselor. You can find detailed information at: http://www.schoolcounselor.org/school-counselors-members/careers-roles/why-elementary-school-counselors For your convenience, I have copied and pasted the bullet points that perfectly describe the role of an elementary counselor.
