Welcome to the

Richards ISD School Counselor’s Webpage



I am very excited to return to our small town school with such a wonderful group of students, staff, and parents.  I finished my first year as a School Counselor as the entire world was treading unprecedented waters due to COVID-19.  Now we set out to attempt to get back to as much normalcy as possible.  We, as a school team, are here to help you through whatever the next craziness is that we face, together!

The information on my Counselor Pages will continue to be updated throughout the year.  You can also find information I share on the Richards ISD Counselor’s Office Facebook page (preview below).  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.  My scheduled work days are 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.  When you sign up you’ll choose to receive text and/or e-mail messages related to RISD (ex. school holiday reminders, bad weather school closings, unexpected early release, etc.).  I highly suggest signing up!

We believe our students’ social, emotional, and academic well-being is a team effort involving them, their parent/guardian, their classroom teacher, RISD support staff, and school administration.  We are here to help them learn how to succeed in school, and in life.  This is a great place to be!


Richards ISD, where Excellence is Expected!
