Mrs. Tamera Jenkins-Wade
My name is Tamera L. Jenkins-Wade and I am one of the High School Counselors at CHHS. I have taught here for the last 14 years and I have been in education for 18 years. It takes a very special person to be an effective counselor. Counseling is not just a profession, but it should be a passion. Knowing that you have the pleasure to aid in the great success and achievement of young people is something wonderful, regardless of their various beginnings. I am from a small town called Marshall, Texas and I am the second oldest of seven children. I have lived in Cedar Hill for over 20 years. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, shopping and laughing. Last but certainly not least, I am a proud Christian and God is the center and foundation of my being.
I attended and received my Bachelor Degree at Wiley College "Home of the Great Debaters" and my Masters of Education(2010) and Masters of Counseling in Family/Marriage(2015) at Liberty University. I am a teacher, counselor, mother, wife, sister and a daughter and I do not take either role lightly. I take pride and great pleasure in giving 100% in every capacity of my life!
