Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Elam

I am proud to be serving as the Counselor at Memorial Elementary. I attended college at The University of Texas at San Antonio and received a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.  After graduation, I decided to pursue my passion for working with children and became a teacher. Almost immediately, I realized that, along with teaching, I wanted to do more to support the social and emotional needs of our students, so I went back to school and earned a masters degree from Lamar University in School Counseling. It has been a wonderful journey and I am thankful every day that I get to work in what I today call my “Dream job”.  I am constantly motivated to bring joy to the process of learning, whether it is for a classroom full of students or a room full of teachers. It is my belief that everyone can strengthen areas that need to be developed, both socially and emotionally, when we are enthusiastically supported by someone with an open-mind, a positive attitude, and high expectations. This will be my 10th year in Education and my 5th year as the Counselor at Memorial. When I am not at my dream job, I enjoy traveling, reading, and playing with my mini aussiedoodle, Blue.
