Welcome to the Counselor’s Corner,

 

My name is Renee Schneider and I am a Taylor High School graduate with a passion for helping our Ducks achieve their full academic and social-emotional potential. I graduated from Texas A&M University and earned my Master’s Degree through Angelo State University. This is my 12th year in education. Before becoming a counselor, I enjoyed teaching at Northside Elementary and Pasemann Elementary. I live in Taylor with my husband of 26 years. Two of my sons are graduates of Taylor High School, and my other two sons are students at Taylor High School. We love being Taylor Ducks!

 

I am excited to be providing services to the students at TH Johnson this year. The counseling program will empower all students to achieve their full academic, social, and personal potential to be a career, college, and community ready.

 

The students will come with their class to my classroom for two guidance lessons each month that will focus on skills to improve their success in learning. Individual and small group counseling sessions are also available to cover topics such as using self-control strategies to become a leader, developing positive friendships, advocating for self, and going through transitions/change. 

 

As a Leader in Me campus, we also help students practice the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Kids. The counseling program will incorporate the habits into the character education program at TH Johnson. I look forward to watching each child at TH Johnson develop leadership skills so that they can go on to do great things!
