Who is Miss Massey?
HELLO RATTAN FAMILIES!
I am so very excited to be the new school counselor at Rattan Elementary. Rattan has been my home for the last seven years. This wonderful campus is where I started my teaching career. I started out teaching 5th grade math for two years. For the last five years I have taught 1st grade. While both are so very different, I enjoyed teaching at both levels.
Before I started teaching I was a social worker. I graduated in 2009 with my Bachelors in Social Work at Texas A&M University - Commerce. I continued to pursue my Masters and graduated in 2010 from TAMU-C. In 2011, I obtained my social work license through the state of Texas and became a Licensed Master Social Worker. I gained my counseling experience by working at The Fannin County Family Crisis Center and Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Texas. Both of these experiences will benefit me greatly as a school counselor. Even though I began teaching, I continued my learning hours to keep my license updated.
When I decided to become a teacher I knew I wanted to be a part of the Anna community. There was just something special about this town. I grew up in Gunter so I have watched Anna grow over the years (or should I say explode!). I have cousins who graduated from Anna and loved their experience. I was so excited to get my opportunity in 2014 and became a part of the Rattan Elementary staff. I have truly enjoyed the last seven years being a part of this campus and district.
In 2019 I graduated from Angelo State University with my School Counseling Certification. I wanted to be able to provides counseling services on the school counselor and intervention counselor side. I am so excited to continue my passion in mental health by becoming the guidance counselor. I have many ideas that I would like to bring to Rattan. I plan on having group counseling, individual counseling, classroom guidance lessons, and so much more. Together your child will be successful.
I look forward to getting to know many more families here at Rattan. If you every have any questions please email me at email@example.com.
Have a great day!
