Mr. Ricardo Puente

Counselor - Middle School

My name is Ricardo Puente and I am the Middle School Counselor at World Languages Institute. Before coming to WLI, I worked as Deaf Education Teacher, Bilingual Teacher, and an Elementary School Counselor. I attended Tarrant County College (formerly TCJC) where I received my Associate's in Applied Science in Interpreting for the Deaf. I also attended Texas Woman's University where I received my Bachelors of Science in Communication Sciences & Disorders. I finished up with a Masters of Science in the Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  I did obtain my certification in school counseling through Texas A&M Commerce (Mesquite Campus). This is 5th year at WLI and I continue to learn every day. I enjoy being a school counselor and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with you and your children. Feel free to contact me regarding any concerns, comments, and/or suggestions.
