Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Andrea Williams. I am the School Counselor here at Highlands Elementary.
I am originally from a small country town in West Texas by the name of Stamford. I am a proud first generation college graduate in my family. I received both my bachelor's and master’s degrees from Texas A&M University-Commerce. I have taught 3rd and 5th grade students in both the public and charter sectors. It was during this time I realized I wanted to pursue a degree in school counseling so that it would allow me an opportunity to help children become more successful students, work with them to help them effectively deal with a variety of problems, and inspire them to do their personal best in their lives. During my tenure as a counselor I’ve served students as a school counselor in elementary, middle, and high school.
My role as a school counselor has truly been rewarding and I’m excited to be a part of Highlands Elementary and Cedar Hill ISD. My belief is to always encourage all students to strive to achieve their personal and academic goals.
I look forward to meeting all of you this year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need my assistance. Wishing everyone an amazing school year!
