Miss Melissa Puentes

Hi Gulledge Gators! My name is Miss Puentes and I am SO excited to be your school counselor 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 Counsling. 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 community. When I'm not at school, I enjoy cooking, taking my dog Arya to the park, and spending time with my family.
