Hello Carver Colts!
My name is Sara Newman, and I am the School Counselor for the Carver Elementary School Community. My background as a Texas educator began in 1995, when I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with my Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree (Hook 'em!) and became a teacher certified in Special Education. My first year I taught in Taylor I.S.D., and moved to G.I.S.D. in the fall of 1996. My teaching experience includes serving elementary students in Special Education in both small groups and self-contained, General Education Math and Reading Intervention, Dyslexia B.L.S. small groups, and Content Mastery for all students. My time teaching in G.I.S.D. has taken me to several elementary schools including Williams, Cooper and Ford. In 2013, I graduated from Lamar University with my Master of Education degree in School Counseling, and became a Certified Professional School Counselor (CSC). I served as a school counselor for Tippit Middle School from July 2013 to June 2016, prior to coming to Carver.
I am married, and my husband and I have two children. Our daughter is a GHS graduate attending UT Austin, and our son will be a senior at GHS. We enjoy spending time together outdoors, including hiking and water sports.
The Carver Counseling Office provides many services to support student success. Some examples include: classroom guidance lessons, small groups (with parent permission), individual visits, coordination of benevolence and mentors/PALs and others. As your school counselor, it is my goal to be available to the Carver Community, including students, families and staff. Several resources have been provided for your information, which may be accessed by following the included links.
