Hello, my name is Lauren Martinez. I am the school counselor for Douglass Elementary. I am a native El Pasoan and attended Western Hills Elementary Elementary, L.B.J. Elementary, Morehead Middle School, and Coronado High School which are all in the El Paso Independent School District. I earned a Bachelors degree in interdisciplinary studies with a focus on education from UTEP in 2010. Prior to my current position as a counselor, I enjoyed teaching first grade for four years. As a teacher I was always drawn to the counseling field. I earned my Master of Education with a concentration in school counseling from UTEP in 2016. I love being the counselor at Douglass Elementary! My day is filled with children which adds so much to my life! I provide guidance lessons throughout the school year in regards to positive self-esteem, anti-bullying, creating a compassionate/caring school climate, goal setting, making positive choices and many other related themes. Individual/Group Counseling and conflict mediation is also available to provide a healthy, safe school environment.
