My name is Carrie Kennedy and I am very excited to be the new Counselor at Troup Middle School! I graduated with a Bachelor of Science from UT Tyler in 2006 and a Master of Arts in School Counseling in 2013. This is my 1st year in Troup ISD and 14th year in education! I am also the Section 504 Coordinator for the campus.
I am very excited to watch Troup Middle School students grow socially and emotionally. Middle School age is a time of tremendous growth academically as well as emotionally. As the school counselor I provide character education via one-on-one guidance, small social skills groups, and whole group guidance lessons to help build character education. I believe well developed, age appropriate pro-social skills are fundamental channels students use to help obtain maximum academic benefit. I look forward to working with your child this year and if I can help with anything pertaining to social and emotional learning, Section 504 or any questions you may have please let me know.
