My name is Crystal Cole, and I am a Certified School Counselor at Gateway/PRC.  I graduated from Lamar University with a Master’s Degree in School Counseling in 2016. I returned to graduate school in February 2017 and completed my coursework to become a Licensed Professional Counselor, August of 2017. My choice to become a Counselor stems from my passionate belief that every student has the potential to be academically, socially, and emotionally successful at school and in life if provided the right techniques, strategies, and coping mechanisms. I will collaboratively aim to create a comprehensive, personal/social, career planning, and developmental environment where we can support and nurture all students while they strive to obtain academic success and eventually become responsible members of society. I love interacting with the students, parents, and staff members. Please call or e-mail me if you have any questions or need assistance. I’m looking forward to a great school year!
