Meet Our Counselor

 

My name is Kyle Rivera and I am the counselor at Dolores Huerta Elementary. This is my 20th year in education and my 12th year as a Professional School Counselor. I am dedicated to developing and implementing a comprehensive counseling program that strives to remove the social and emotional roadblocks that negatively impact student acheivement.

I graduated from TCU in 2000 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and I taught English at the American School of Puebla in Puebla, Mexico for seven years. The American School is an International Baccalaureate school where I had the opportunity to work with students, parents, and educators from all over the world. During my time in Mexico, I also earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at the Universidad de las Americas Puebla and did volunteer work for Juconi, a non-profit organization dedicated to designing and implementing family and social services for children living or working on the street.

My husband and I moved back to Fort Worth in 2007, and I began teaching third grade at Dolores Huerta Elementary. In 2008, I took over the Counseling position at Dolores Huerta because I wanted to help students develop strong character, learn coping skills, and build the confidence they needed to be successful in the classroom and in their community.
