Mrs. Melissa Puentes
Hi Gulledge Gators! My name is Mrs. Puentes and I am SO excited to be your school counselor again this year! I grew up right here in Plano, TX, and then attended UT Austin (Hook 'Em Horns!) where I received my teaching degree in elementary education. Then I attended SMU where I earned my Masters of Science in Counseling. I taught third & fourth grades here in PISD at Huffman Elementary and Hickey Elementary, before joining the Gulledge family. I feel so lucky to be a part of such a wonderful school community. When I'm not at school, I enjoy traveling to new places, taking my dog Arya for walks, and spending time with my husband Alex and our new baby, Jesse.
