Howard, Kristina

Girls Cartoon.pngI am Ms. Howard and I am a counselor here at Bassett Middle School. I began my career in education a few years back as an AVID tutor I went on into a very fulfilling teaching career that has now lead me to want to serve our students in a different capacity. I thoroughly enjoy working with students especially middle school. My goal is to provide  students with the most optimal and holistic educational experience possible and prepare them to enter into new and exciting life and career experiences.

My role here at Bassett is to support all students and staff through direct and indirect points of contact that include but are not limited to: Guidance counseling (group and individual settings), college and career readiness plans, assisting students of all levels from elementary to college, acting as an advocate for students' well-beings, acting as a valuable resource for their educational advancement, listening to and providing answers for student issues and concerns (based on the individual circumstance), assisting with student issues such as bullying, disabilities, low self-esteem, poor academic performance, and/or relationship issues. I also evaluate students' interests, abilities and personalities to help them set realistic goals for themselves in regards to choosing the right academic disciplines and careers. I also collaborate with parents and the school community to help support student interests.  

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. I am always looking for ways to improve how I contribute to the school community as a whole and how we can improve the services that are provided for our students.
