My College Experience...
I attended three different colleges and universities. After graduating high school, I enrolled at Dallas Christian College and graduated after three years with a Diploma of Bible and Education. For my senior year, I transferred to Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachi, TX and graduated with a degree in Education and English. After teaching English for 10 years, I felt the desire to further my education. I chose to attend Angelo State University, and I graduated with my Master's degree in Guidance and Counseling in 2017.
Now, I am thrilled to be your academic counselor at Gateway College Prep and help you prepare for your future college experience! Feel free to stop by the front office if you have any questions!
