  • Introduction:
     
    I am so excited to have another year as school counselor with the awesome students of Kennard I.S.D. After 25 years as an educator, the exictement and anticipation of another year of student growth remains constant. The 2018-2019 school year is here. Welcome back!   
     
    Guidance Motto: 
     
    Empowering students to reach their highest level of achievement by enhancing their academic, social and emptional learning. With our guidance lessons that focus on Character Education and Self-Regulation skills plus our school-wide incentives that encourage safe and respectful behavior, our goal is to empower each student with life-long tools to one day become productive members of society.
