Tyler ISD is proud to celebrate National School Counseling Week Feb. 4-8, 2019.
“It is a joy to work with the 44 dedicated professional counselors of Tyler ISD," Leigh Anne Barber, Tyler ISD Guidance and Counseling Director, said. "Together we focus on the personal, social/emotional, academic and career goals of our students.”
With a combined experience (Elementary and Secondary) of 425 years in school counseling, this group of educators strives every day to be a compassionate ear, a solution-focused problem-solver, a caring advocate and most of all a support system for their students and campuses.
All Tyler ISD counselors are Professional School Counselors and each wear many hats throughout the school day. Some of these responsibilities include:
character education and guidance;
student leadership responsibilities;
parent/family/student counseling sessions;
setting up resources for students/families;
determining prevention and intervention strategies;
college and career guidance;
Thank you, counselors, for your tremendous impact on our students!
