Mrs. Kristin Holder

Hello! I am delighted to be serving as the counselor at Amy Parks Heath Elementary! I have eleven years experience as an elementary school counselor, and prior to becoming a counselor I taught both middle school and high school for seven years. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Education from Baylor University, and a Master of Science in Counseling from Texas A&M Commerce. 

I can't wait to start my fifth year at Amy Parks. Although this year will be very different, please know that you can contact me by phone or email at any time. 

 

Vision Statement

The vision of the Amy Parks Heath counseling program is to provide a comprehensive, responsive, and preventative program that addresses the academic, social, and emotional needs of all our students. The counseling program promotes personal growth, academic excellence, and social responsibility through developing character and promoting student leadership.  Our campus believes that every student can be successful through collaborative endeavors between school, home, and community. The Amy Parks counseling program seeks to ensure students are provided a safe and positive environment where they feel a sense of belonging and connectedness to our school and the surrounding community, while preparing to become a part of a global workforce.

 

Mission Statement

At Amy Parks, the educational experience of every student on our campus is important. We strive to ensure that each child will become a life-long learner and a responsible, contributing member of society while also developing self respect, self control, and respect for others. The counseling program supports the campus mission by promoting positive citizenship, responsible behavior, and social emotional development so that all students are equipped to meet or exceed educational performance standards.
