My name is Allison Stephens and I am the counselor at Burton Hill Elementary. This is my 20th year in education and my 1st (full) year in counseling. I taught Pre-K and Kindergarten at Briscoe Elementary for 12 years and 2nd- 4th grades at Burton Hill Elementary for 7 years. I wanted to pursue a different avenue of working with children so I went back to school to become a counselor. I am so excited to continue this new journey of counseling and look forward to helping the students reach their academic, social, and emotional growth. I believe in the power of relationships and fostering a nurturing environment in which all students are able to grow in and learn.
I graduated with a B.S. in Psychology from Texas Christian University and a M.Ed. in School Counseling from Lamar University. I am someone who loves to learn, therefore I attend various trainings that will help me as a school counselor. I believe that learning should never stop!
I live in Fort Worth with my two daughters, Amilya (17) and Ryleigh (14), our 2 dogs (Hazel and Moana) and our cat (Monie). Our family loves to travel, play volleyball, go to TCU volleyball and football games, watch movies, and just spend time together.
