Meet Mrs. Jackson
Hello, my name is Wendy Jackson and I am the counselor for the Secondary campus at Overton ISD serving grades 6-12. This is my second year as counselor and my 15th year in education. The easiest way to contact me is through email at or by calling my direct line at 903-834-6143, option 2.
My husband and I have four awesome kids. They keep me extremely busy but when I do have time for hobbies, they include traveling in our camper, being outdoors, watching sports, taking pictures, writing, and doing just about anything with our family and friends.
Education and Qualifications
I hold a Master's degree in Education in School Counseling from Lamar University (2017). I also hold teaching certifications in Secondary English and Special Education K-12 from Letourneau University (2004). In addition to my qualifications in the field of Education, I hold a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Houston (2002).
Personal Mission Statement
As a secondary counselor, I believe that each and every one of my students is special in their own way. It is my personal mission to guide students to reach their full potential by providing them with the knowledge and tools necessary in order for them to identify with what motivates them to be successful academically, personally, and professionally.
As a school counselor, it is my mission to develop my counseling skills by experiencing all aspects of school counseling. I will always strive to be a genuine, empathetic, and caring professional who is open, honest, and non-judgmental in developing the counseling relationships with my students.
I am a member of the American School Counselor's Association (ASCA, 2016-17).
As a counselor at OISD, it is my mission to uphold the beliefs of our school's mission statement that all students can learn. Part of the momentum in achieving that mission is to maintain professional relationships with students, faculty, and families at all times. As your school counselor, I am here to help guide you through the school year and help you with academic, social, and personal struggles that you may have; our meetings should be limited to scheduled appointments unless an emergency or crisis arises.
