Counselor (A-L)

Mrs. Hagler 2021

I am so excited to join Ferris Junior High this year. I am ready to partner with and advocate for all of my students and families.  I have had the amazing opportunity of being a counselor for 18 years with various types of experience including grades K-12. I am passionate about helping students achieve their goals.  As a counselor, I strive to spread joy everyday and create opportunities for connection while being a catalyst in changing the trajectory of students’ lives.  My goal is to build relationships with students and staff while building a bridge with parents to help students accomplish academic success.

I have been happily married for 20 years and I am a proud momma of two boys, ages 9 and 16. I grew up in Mesquite, but currently live in Ennis. My teaching background is Special Education and I am always available to lend a hand to help students and parents. I graduated from University of North Texas with my Bachelor’s in Special Education in 1998 and my Master’s in Counseling in 2003. When I am outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, swimming, and thrift shopping.
