Hi, my name is Mitzi Oliver. I am excited to be the school counselor at Bañuelos Elementary School. I earned a Bachelor of Science and Master of School Administration both from Texas Southern University. In addition, I earned a Master of School Counseling from Lamar University. I have over twenty years of experience as an educator. I have a passion for working with children and helping them reach their highest potential of social and emotional success. As an aspiring school counselor, my objective is to be an effective and unbiased counselor that effectively guide students in life choices and career endeavors while advocating the counseling profession, upholding ethical standards, and committing to lifelong learning.
My philosophy of school counseling includes building relationships with students of all backgrounds and focusing on the “whole child”. As well as promoting a collaborative relationship with parents, community, and staff. As a professional school counselor, I will assure that all students feel a sense of self-worth by knowing and embracing who they are. Creating a nonjudgmental and compassionate counseling program is my desire. Helping students see their potential and self-worth is my goal.
