From your Counselors
The Counseling Department at Burbank Middle School is made up of four dedicated professionals who strive to give our students the best possible help with their counseling needs. Whether it is a schedule tailored to the student's academic requirements, advice regarding a high school or career choice, or coping with stress in their lives, our counselors are ready to lend a hand.
Even though all counselors help all our students, each grade level has an assigned counselor to take care of their specific needs:
6th Grade Ms. Frances Cortina
7th Grade Mrs. Carmen Porras
8th Grade Ms. Takeshia Johnson
L-R: Carmen Porras, Frances Cortina, Carlos Martinez, Takeshia Johnson
We also have an additional counselor, Mr. Carlos Martinez, to take care specifically of our at-risk students. We feel strongly that monitoring and giving assistance in a timely manner is key for the success of our at-risk students.
Starting this year, we have a Wraparound Specialist, Ms. Lis O'Sullivan, on our campus. Wraparound Services is here to help our students with the non-academic support necessary to be successful in school such as access to mental and physical health professionals, food, and housing. For more information, please visit the Wraparound Services page or call Ms. O'Sullivan at 713-696-2720 Ext. 043280.
Counseling covers many areas in a student's life, so the counselors have put together this section to address a variety of subjects. We hope you come back to visit often!
