Sharlene Barton

Hello!  My name is Sharlene Barton, and I am a counselor at Frankford.   One of the best things about being a middle school counselor in PISD is the fact that I am the counselor with my students for three years.   We get to know each other well.  It is  amazing to watch the academic, physical and emotional changes take place from a new 6th grade student to an 8th grade student ready to move on to high school.   I love my job because it gives me an opportunity to connect with students, to help and support them, and to watch their progress.

A little about me -  I have three grown children and twelve amazing grandchildren who add so much joy to my life.  I attended the University of Utah where I received a B.A. degree in English.  I taught school for a few years and went on the raise my children.  I then attended Texas A&M - Commerce and recieved a M.S. degree in Counseling.  I am not only a Professional School Counselor, but I also am a Licensed Professional Counselor.  I have worked both in the schools and in private practice settings.

I feel so fortunate to be a part of Frankford.  I love working with students, parents, and our fabulous staff!
