Welcome back! 

We are in for a great school year at Bridge City Middle School. Middle school can be a wonderful time in students’ lives, but it can also present challenges. I am here to support and address the needs of all of the students at BCMS. My hope is that students feel my office is a safe haven, where they are welcome at any time. Parents, teachers, and administrators can refer students to me for a number of reasons.  An important aspect of this department is to assist students to adjust to the social and academic setting of the Middle School.  A counselor can help students discover aptitudes, interests and needs as well as to plan courses, make schedules, and acquire relevant and pertinent information. Parents are encouraged to visit with the me whenever they need assistance concerning their child's academic, social, or emotional health. I hope you will consider me a valuable resource and important partner on your child’s team. If you would like for me to meet with your child, please contact me.  I am happy to help.

​I look forward to providing encouragement and support to your children as they continue to learn, grow, and develop in middle school. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
