Welcome to the Counseling Department at Royal Elementary School.
I am Jennifer Cavender, your school counselor. I graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelors in Psychology and from the University of St. Thomas with a Master's in Education Counseling. I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th graders in Houston ISD. My current role as counselor is to support our students' academic, social, and emotional growth through counseling and collaborating with teachers, staff, and parents. I also serve as a resource for parents, teachers, and the community.
In addition to being a certified school counselor, I am currently working on my LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor credentials.
