Debra Ingram, School Counselor
Hello! I’m Debbie Ingram, and I am so blessed to be a School Counselor at Austin Elementary! This is my 24th year in education and my 14th year as a counselor. I am a graduate of California State University, Northridge and have a BA in Sociology with a specialization in Counseling. I later completed my Master of Education in Counseling & Guidance at the University of Texas at Brownsville and have had the privilege of counseling in both elementary and high school.
As a school counselor, my role is to help students prepare for academic achievement, ensure career readiness and develop personal or social competencies through a comprehensive, preventive and developmental counseling program. My goal is to ensure that students will become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. Please do not hesitate to contact me if there are ever any needs.
