Meet the Counselor
Thank you for visiting my page! My name is Mrs. Trisha Barnes and I am the school counselor for Little Cypress Intermediate.This is my 4th school year as LCI Counselor. Prior to becoming a counselor, I taught 7th grade science for 8 years. I loved being a classroom teacher, but I now get the amazing opportunity to help students in a whole new way. As school counselor, my goal is to facilitate the personal, social and academic success of all students. I collaborate with administrators, teachers, parents/guardians, students and community members to help promote a positive and productive learning environment.
If you have a returning student on our campus, ask them about the monthly counselor lessons. One of my favorite parts of my job is going into classrooms to teach social/emotional skills to ALL of our students. This year, I will be incorporating some lessons utilizing technology to reach both in person and virtual learners
So far, my counseling career has included 2 devastating floods and now we're navigating through a global pandemic. One thing I've learned over the last few years is how resilient our students, staff, parents and community can be when faced with adversity.
