My name is Margarita Belmares. I am happy to introduce myself as the Bilingual School Counselor at L.A. Morgan Elementary.
I am originally from Brownsville, Texas but have been in the Houston area since 1998. I received my bachelors in education from the University of Texas at Brownsville in 1995. I worked as an elementary bilingual teacher for 3 years before becoming certified in Special Education. I spend most of my teaching career working as a Bilingual Special Education teacher both for Houston ISD and Clear-Creek ISD. During this time, I obtained two Masters degrees both in Psychology and in Counseling from the University of Houston Clear-Lake.
I am very honored to be completing my second year as a Bilingual School Counselor for Galveston ISD. I am really enjoying my role in encouraging all children to strive for their personal best. I am also thrilled to be working with the students, teachers, administrators and parents of L.A. Morgan, whom I so highly regard.
I am looking forward to my third year as L.A. Morgan's School Counselor during this 2017-2018 school year. If you have any concerns regarding your son or daughter, please feel free to contact me. I would love to talk with you over the phone or set up a conference so that we can meet in person.
