Hello, my name is Valerie Llanas, and I am excited to join the Legacy Family as the School Counselor this school year. I received my Bachelor of Science in Education in 2003 from Eastern New Mexico University and began teaching that same year. I received my Master of Education in Counselor Education from Texas Tech University in 2009 and have been a school counselor since then. I have experience counseling with both elementary and middle school students.
As the school counselor, I am here to help students develop social and emotional learning and mental health awareness and wellbeing. I work with students to build problem solving and conflict management skills. I also promote College and Career Readiness for all students because it's never too early to start dreaming about the future.
My husband is a teacher and a coach, and we are raising three active young boys. We are often watching or attending some type of sporting event. I love the Red Raiders and the great state of Texas.
I look forward to working with the students, staff, and families at Legacy this school year. Please reach out this school year if you should need my assistance. I am here to help!
