My name is Ariadne Pereira and I am very honored to be Haggard’s 7th grade counselor! I have been married to my husband Leandro for 21 years and we have two beautiful daughters: Isabella, who will be a sophomore at UT Dallas this fall, and Clarissa who will be a junior in high school. We also have a shih tzu named Hazel, and a Maltese named Freddie, who I usually refer to “as my furry babies”. I am originally from Brazil, but I have been calling Texas home for the past 16 years. Portuguese is my first language, but I speak Spanish as well. Prior to becoming a counselor at Haggard, I taught math in Arlington and Grand Prairie. Before that, I worked as a clinical psychologist in Brazil. In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my family, reading, and going to the movies. This will be my 10th year at Haggard, and I feel blessed for the opportunity to continue working with my fabulous 6th graders! Watching my kids grow and being a part of their lives as they go through their middle school years is the best! I look forward to welcoming back all my wonderful rising 7th graders and to getting to know my new students and their families very soon! My job is to support my students socially, emotionally and, academically, so they can have the best possible experience at Haggard. Please do not hesitate to reach out and let me know how I can help.
