• Hello! !! My name is Yolanda Ramos Horsch.  I have been with Denton ISD for 19 years, 12 years as a 2nd and 3rd grade teacher and 7 years as school counselor. All my career at Denton ISD has been here at Newton Rayzor .  Newton Rayzor is an exiting place to be with an excellent staff, a supportive community, and great kids!
     
    My job as school counselor is to provide students social, emotional, and academic support so they will be the best learners they can be.  I provide guidance lessons to students from kindergarten thru 5th grade.
    That means I go into the classrooms and teach activities, games, lessons, videos, and other activities which will support the counseling program and the IB Learner Profile.
    Topics for guidance lessons are:
    • Stress management
    • Anti-bullying
    • Anti-victimization
    • Character Education (IB Attitudes)
    • Healthy Friendships
    • Drug, alcohol, and tobacco awareness
    • Goal setting and decision making
    • Career awareness
    I also conduct small group counseling in these areas:
    • Social skills
    • Friendship skills
    • Divorce
    • Study skills
    • Academic success
    • Anger management
    • Grief
    • And others issues which may arise
    I provide individual counseling for students for a short period of time on an as needed basis, and assist students in crisis situations.
     
    Referrals to see the counselor may be made by the student, teacher, parent or administrators.  In some instances I will see a student by referral of a concerned classmate.
     
    You may also contact me for community resources.
