Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Tara Simpson
I am thrilled to serve the Benold Middle School Eagles as a counselor. Over the past six years, I have served the Georgetown community as a middle school science teacher, grade level team leader, cheer sponsor, and counselor. I received my bachelor's degree from The University of Texas at Austin (2001, Hook 'em!), and my master's degrees from Texas State University in San Marcos (2008) and Lamar University (2016). I plan to continue my education in pursuit of an LPC certification. My husband and I moved to Georgetown eleven years ago. We have two daughters and a furbaby, Moose, who keep us on our toes.
I am extremely invested in our community as a parent and educator. For me, working with children is the most rewarding job in the universe. I truly believe that student success is a collaborative effort among community members, parents, students, and staff. I look forward to partnering with you in this process.
