Counselor - Angela Dockery
Personal: born and raised in Longview, Texas.
Education: I received my Master’s of Education and School Counseling from Dallas Baptist University. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Texas at Arlington. My Associate of Arts in Behavior Science was completed at Kilgore Junior College.
Community Service: I am a volunteer interpreter for the deaf. I was a volunteer in the Big Brother and Big Sister organization. I have volunteered at retirement homes to visit with the elderly. I have helped with organizations that help to clean up homes for the disabled. Through my church I have worked with the deaf ministry, nursery, children’s church, teaching 3-4 grade, and bus ministry.
Personal Philosophy of School Counseling:
I believe proper educational placement is essential to an academic career. Through observation, testing, analysis, and consultation I will ensure each student has the opportunity for the best placement to enrich their academic needs.
I seek community, parental, and staff involvement through activities, organized events, meetings, organizations, and personal communication. I actively recruit interest in our students by educating them on how they can offer support. I let them know they are appreciated by communication and random acts of appreciation.Through discipline, education, counseling, and guidance I help my students form the skills needed to become the leaders of the future and citizens who will contribute beneficially to the world that surrounds them. I continue to be diligent and dedicated to my calling, in hopes that one day my students will also be.
