Counselor

I am Melissa Farber and I am so honored to be the new counselor at Bunker Hill! I have worked in education as both an elementary school and middle school teacher as well as a reading interventionist. Although I have loved all of my roles, working with students on social and emotional growth has always been my biggest passion. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to take on this role at BHE.

I attended the University of Texas, (Hook ‘Em!) where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Communication. I recently completed my Master’s in Education: Guidance and Counseling through Angelo State University.

As the counselor, I will provide monthly classroom guidance lessons to all students. Guidance lessons focus on topics such as character education, self-confidence, motivation to achieve, decision-making, goal-setting, problem solving, interpersonal competence, communication skills, cross-cultural effectiveness, and responsible behavior.

I will also provide responsive services as needed. These can include both individual and group counseling for students. Students can be referred by parents, teachers, administration, or themselves. These services focus on social skills, emotional regulation, academic preparation such as goal setting, as well as other needs. These responsive services are short-term and should not be thought of as therapy or treatment. Referrals can be made if requested.

Counselors in SBISD also handle the G/T referral process and Credit by Examination testing. If you have any questions about either of these programs, feel free to contact me.

I am so excited to work with the amazing students, parents, and staff at BHE!  Go Lions!
