Ms. T. Merik (tmmerik@aldineisd.org)

Greetings!  I am excited to begin another year with the exceptional staff at Benjamin O. Davis, Jr. Senior High School.  This is my ninth year in education and my fifth year as a school counselor.  I am a graduate of Baylor University where I earned my Bachelor of Business Administration in 2009.  I am also an alumnus of Lamar University where I earned my Master of Education in School Counseling in 2014.  Previous to becoming a school counselor, I was a math teacher for four years, and I also worked as a supply chain analyst for HEB Grocery prior to joining the education profession.

 

I truly believe that our children are our most precious resource.  An investment in our students is an investment in our future as they will surely produce economic and social dividends for many years to come.  

 

As a school counselor, it is my goal to develop student achievement in the areas of academic, social, personal, and career exploration.  What does that mean?  It means that I am here to support YOU, the student.  In order to do so, I serve as a liaison between students, parents, teachers, administration, and the community to provide my students with as many resources and benefits as possible.  In essence, as a counselor, I am in "your corner" and I am here to help you.  

 

I will work hard to lead all stakeholders in implementing a comprehensive school counseling program that works to provide educational equity and social justice advocacy for all students.  

 

I have an open door policy and will gladly meet with you, if I am available, without an appointment.  However, I do stay very busy working with our wonderful students at "Big Davis," so please leave a message or send me an e-mail if you are unable to meet with/reach me.  I will respond to your message as quickly as possible.  

 

I am also one of the coordinators for AP Testing as well as the Service (Volunteer) Hours contact.  Please feel free to reach out to me should you have any questions.

 

I wish you a GREAT day!  Whether you do or not, it's up to you!
