Welcome the the Navarro Intermediate School Counselor's Office!
As the counselor at NIS, I offer a variety of services to our students and their families. I meet with students who may be having difficulty adjusting to school, making/keeping friends, having family issues, or those who are just having a bad day. I also have Lunch Bunch for students. This offers the students an opportunity to meet socially with their friends as they eat lunch with me in my activity room. The kids love the interaction with their friends, and I love getting to know my students in this light.
In addition, for families, I have a list of community resources that offers such services as outside counseling agencies, recreational activities for children, assistance with utilities/rent as well as medical and food assistance, and tutoring services.
Our character education lessons are based on Sean Covey's 7 Habits of Happy Kids.
Through weekly "Target: Success" groups, students learn about the 7 Habits: Habit 1: Be Proactive, Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind, Habit 3: Put First Things First, Habit 4: Think Win-Win, Habit 5: Seek First to Understand Then to be Understood, Habit 6: Synergize, and Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw. Through the 7 Habits, students will learn lifelong skills to help prepare them for their future, as well as, their everyday lives.
My goal as your counselor at Navarro Intermediate is to provide for your child a positive, enriching school year academically, mentally, and socially. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please contact me at
