Mrs. Jennifer Lugo
Last Name A-L
Hi there! I am absolutely honored and blessed to serve as a Professional School Counselor at Benold Middle School for all 6th-8th grade students with a last name beginning in A-L.
I am a graduate of Texas State University-San Marcos and Angelo State University where I earned my B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies and my M.Ed. in School Counseling. I have 10 years experience in education, with 7 of those years in Georgetown ISD. I began my educational career as a self-contained 5th grade teacher before pursuing a position in departmentalized math instruction. I also supported my campus as a math interventionist and found great joy in building relationships with students, parents, and teachers across all grade levels. Collectively, these experiences set the foundation for my work as a School Counselor, and I am absolutely thrilled to continue growing, leading, and serving in my community.
I truly believe all Benold Middle School scholars are unique leaders and it is my personal mission to guide and support every student in reaching his/her maximum potential. I choose to live by the philosophy that authenticity requires vulnerability, transparency, and integrity. Brene Brown put it nicely when she said “you either walk inside your story and own it, or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness”. Either way, we all have the ability to set the tone for what the next chapter in our story will be. I am passionate about helping students find their inner potential and building on their strengths to choose courage over comfort, regardless of life’s circumstances, obstacles, and/or setbacks. I encourage you to always make it a great day...or not, but ultimately the choice is YOURS!
It is going to be an amazing school year. If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am here for YOU!
