Misty Speck



My name is Misty Speck and I am excited to be a part of the Upland Heights team.  I graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Multidisciplinary Studies and at Angelo State University with a Master of Education degree in Guidance and Counseling.  I have 12 years of teaching experience with 5 years at Canyon ISD and the past 7 years at Frenship ISD.  I am married with 3 children: Addisyn (10), Landon (5), and Brynlee (4).
As the counselor for Upland Heights Elementary, my goals are to support students in the academic, personal, and social realms.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year getting to know and work with your child.  Thank you in advance for your support.
