Katrina Bays

          Greetings! I'm Katrina Bays, and I am absolutely thrilled to serve as your School Counselor at BME for the 2023-2024 academic year! I've had the privilege of being part of Manor ISD for a fantastic span of 8 years, during which I taught both 2nd grade and Kindergarten prior to stepping into my current position. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, and I am on track to complete my Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling this upcoming spring. I am looking forward to serving the BME community, and creating a safe, positive space to help navigate our scholars social-emotional and academic needs.

          As your scholar’s counselor, I am here to provide support with those big emotions we as humans all have. Through our 7 Mindsets social-emotional curriculum, I will guide whole-group instruction, small group sessions, and one-on-one support, along with hosting monthly assemblies to celebrate our teachers and scholars success! Creating a positive, nurturing school community to learn and grow in is my goal and philosophy.
