Ms. Shaniquwa Finley-Carter

My name is Shaniquwa Finley-Carter. I am the Middle School Counselor at The Rice School La Escuela Rice K-8.

I am originally from Dallas, Texas, and a proud mother of three wonderfully vibrant children. I graduated from Prairie A&M University, where I received my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Counseling. I have served as a secondary counselor for over 10 years. Majority of my counseling career has been spent in various surrounding school districts before returning to Houston ISD.

My role as a school counselor has truly been rewarding and exciting.  I really enjoy working with students, teachers, the administrative team, and parents who are vested in educational success of every child.  As a school counselor I am the first line of support for each student and my belief is to always encourage all students to strive to achieve their goals as they journey through adolescence.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need my assistance. Wishing everyone an amazing school year.
