Guidance & Counseling

Meet our counselor

Mrs. Wright has been the counselor at Keeley since the year 2000.  She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Texas at Dallas and her master's degree in counseling from Texas Women's University.  Mrs. Wright is here to help the students become the best they can be.  She reaches the kids through guidance lessons, lunch groups, and meets with them individually if needed. 

 

What can my counselor do for me?

Counselors will help you by:

  • reviewing your choice of subject during the registration period (February - April)
  • providing study skills and academic information
  • providing career and college information
  • helping in teacher/student relationships
  • helping cope with family issues
  • listening to concerns about friends, etc.
  • giving you information about life and decision-making skills
  • referring you to people or places outside of school for help if necessary
  • being your advocate - counselors are here for you

Counselors for each campus are certified by the state of Texas in School Counseling, have a Master's Degree, and previous teaching experience.  Each elementary school has a guidance counselor to help ensure that adequate support for helping students to succeed and meet their goals is available.

College awareness for elementary

Elementary school is not too early for kids to think about what they want to be when they grow up.  At elementary age, it's easy to help lead your child on the road to success.  A parent's role at this age is to support and encourage their learning as much as possible.  Our district website has more ideas on college and career readiness. Listed below are some things kids and parents can do to make learning fun. We want every child to be prepared, regardless of their path.

Students

  • Do your best in school
  • Read a lot
  • Have fun learning

Parents

  • Read out loud to your child so they can develop an interest in reading
  • Check your child's homework, look at report cards, and attend teacher conferences
  • Start saving now for their education, whether it is a university, trade school or junior college
