Margarita Gonzalez,
Proud panther school counselor

Mrs. Gonzalez

I am so happy to be your child’s counselor this school year. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Bilingual Education from Texas Wesleyan University in 1997. I have a Masters in School Counseling from Amberton University in 2008 and I also earned a Certificate in School Administration from Lamar University in 2012.  

I was a bilingual teacher for nine years, and I have been a school counselor for eleven years. I became a counselor because I knew that as a counselor I could have a greater influence in preparing our students to become productive, respectful, and responsible citizens.

I am also a Love and Logic parent trainer and a member of our school's PTA.
