Welcome to the

Richards ISD School Counselor’s Webpage


I was SO excited to be returning to Richards this year with a wonderful group of students, staff, and parents in my new position as counselor.  Nobody would have guessed the entire world would be treading these unprecedented waters before the year was over.  No worries though!  We, as a school team, are here to help you through the craziness :-)


I will continue to update my web pages (listed below) as I receive new and updated information.  If there is anything you have a question or concern about that you don’t see an answer to here, please feel free to email me or call me at my school number below.  I will be checking my RISD messages on my scheduled work days:  Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.


Stay informed with messages from the district by going to the RISD Home Page and clicking on the left side of the page to sign up for schoolwide E-Notes.  Signing up will allow you to receive text and/or e-mail messages related to RISD (ex. school holiday reminders, bad weather school closings, unexpected early release, etc.).  I suggest signing up.


Your child's social, emotional, and academic well-being is a team effort involving them, you as their parent/guardian, their classroom teacher, RISD support staff, and school administration.  This is a great place to be!


Richards ISD, where Excellence is Expected!
