About Mrs. Riley

Mrs. Riley
  •   My name is Iysha Riley (formerly Ms. Batts) and I am the counselor for Mickey Leland College Preparatory Academy. I have worked at MLCPA for 5 years as a middle and high school English teacher and made my transition to counselor in the Spring of the 2018-2019 school year. 

      As a school counselor, my primary responsibility is to be an advocate for students and work collaboratively with them as well as parents, teachers, and administrators to promote their academic, personal, and social development.

      My involvement with the students will take place in several ways. Counseling activities can include individual or small group counseling, assistance with individual student planning, classroom guidance lessons, and school wide prevention and awareness programs.  Many of these activities will focus on helping students learn ways to build positive social skills, gain confidence in their ability to interact with others and learn ways to deal with problems and conflicts constructively.

     I am, also, available to meet with parents to discuss specific concerns or to serve as a liaison for families needing community resources. 

     Please feel free to contact me at (713) 226-2668 or iysha.riley@houstonisd.org, if you have any questions or concerns.

          I look forward to a great year!
