Ms. Yubicela Sandoval

9th grade Counselor

Hello and welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! My name is Yubicela Sandoval, and I am excited to serve as the 9th grade school counselor at Furr High School. This starts my 11th year in education and 1st year as a school counselor.  I have a Master's Degree in School Counseling from Lamar University and a Bachelor's Degree in Mathematics & Psychology from University of Houston-Main Campus.

I am passionate about my role and am excited to serve all students at Furr High school.  I was recognized by ProUnitas during National School Counseling week 2024 for delivering timely support to students to address their needs and help them reach their fullest potential. I look forward to having a great year and being your counselor.

My role at Furr High School:

Guidance Curriculum: Help students develop their full educational potential and instill values and character.

Responsive Services: Intervene on behalf of any student whose immediate concerns or problems put the student's continued educational, personal, or social development at risk.

 Individual Planning: Guide a student as the student plans, monitors, and manages the student's own educational, career, personal, or social development.

 System Support:  Support the efforts of the teachers, staff, parents, and other members of the community in promoting the educational, career, personal, and social development of students.  Students are serviced by the school counselor through classroom guidance lessons, short-term small groups, or short-term individual counseling as needed.  Individual counseling in the school setting is not therapeutic in nature.  Parents may contact the school counselor for a list of resources in and around the Houston area.

 Limits of Confidentiality

Things that are disclosed by students will remain confidential with a few exceptions: (1) harm to self, (2) harm to others, (3) being harmed by others.
