I am so happy to be at the Special Programs Center!  I graduated with my Bachelor's degree from Midwestern State University, and earned my Masters of Education in School Counseling from Lamar University.  My husband and I, along with our two sons, cannot be happier to be a part of Northwest ISD, and we look forward to do all that we can to ensure success for every student we encounter.

Mission: To provide a comprehensive guidance and counseling program which fosters academic success, college and career preparation, and social and emotional development. Through effective communication, I will consult and collaborate with students, parents, teachers, and members of the community to advocate on behalf of all students.

its up to u

Northwest ISD students joined forces with the One Voice, One Choice alliance to create a District-wide positive message, “It’s Up 2 U.” “It’s Up 2 U” serves to remind all of us to be proactive in preventing suicide, bullying, cyber-bullying, drug use/abuse, violence, and any self-harm. Tell a trusted adult or submit an online NISD Tip Line ( Remaining silent is not the solution. Encourage one another and share what you’re doing at #itsup2U. 

Real Talks

A new resource this year for parents is "Real Talks". The idea of “Real Talks” is to encourage authentic conversation about topics affecting our children and youth. As you see editions of “Real Talks," please make sure you take time to read what’s being discussed at school and how you can add to the discussion as a parent/guardian. “Real Talks” will provide talking points for you to initiate conversations with your kid(s) at home. As the proverb goes, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Northwest ISD, in partnership with you, will strive to facilitate healthy life choices for our students.
