Julie Thrift

  • My name is Julie Thrift, and I couldn't be more excited to join the Boggess community! I taught third grade here for one year many years ago before becoming a counselor in the district, and I feel so blessed to be able to return to this wonderful campus! I look forward to getting to know you all and am grateful for the opportunity to work with you and your children! I thank you in advance for sharing them with me, and I am anticipating a fun year of growth and wonderful memory-making!

    To share with you a bit about my background, I earned a Bachelor's degree from Abilene Christian University and received certifications in both Special Education and Regular Education. I taught Special Education for 3 years before teaching third grade, which I taught for 8 years. I loved teaching and also felt called to counseling, so I worked to earn a Master's degree in School Counseling from Amberton University.  

    As school counselor, I work diligently to advocate for each student and support them in every way possible. One way I am able to do this is through guidance lessons. I see each K-5 student in class twice per month and pre-K on a 3-week rotation. In these lessons, I cover a variety of topics, including but not limited to bullying prevention, conflict resolution, drug education prevention, and goal-setting. In addition to guidance, I work with students individually and in small groups to provide support in navigating their circumstances. These types of interventions are provided on a referral basis from teachers, parents, or the students themselves. I have the best job in the world because I get to do what I love — work with children and families!

    My door is always open, so please don't hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can do for you!
