HPG Counseling Department
Welcome to Hector P. Garcia Elementary! My name is Berenice Garza and I am excited and honored to start this school year with your children. I am committed to encouraging, supporting, and empowering our students to become the best version of themselves. My primary task is to help all students become better learners by providing a comprehensive and developmental counseling program that meets their academic, personal, and social needs.
Each month, a guidance lesson will be presented and focus on a character trait. During or after the lesson, students may view a video, play a game, or create an activity that enhances the monthly character trait. When the students know and develop their personal traits, they can work to strengthen them and develop better relationships with their peers.
Some students may also participate in small counseling groups, where 3-6 students share similar concerns and work together in a small group and safe environment. Individual counseling is available to all students where personal or academic barriers can be addressed. Discussion topics are based on student’s need and are encouraged to exercise problem resolutions on their own and are guided as needed.
Some reasons to see or contact your child’s counselor may include, but not limited to:
Any questions, comments, or concerns, please call or email me at any given time.
