Hebron Valley ES Counselor's Corner

Bianca Prado, M.S., NCC, LPC

Howdy, Huskies!

I am so excited to spend my 10th year in education with all of you! This school year looks different, and so far, it's been an incredible year for all of us to learn and grow together. I am always here for you, and consider myself blessed to get to serve as your Professional School Counselor once again!

About Your Counselor

I received my undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University at College Station, and I am the proudest member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2011! I began my education career in the Fall following my graduation, and I spent seven years (five in LISD) teaching middle school English Language Arts / Reading. After earning my Masters in Counseling from University of North Texas in December of 2017, I became a counselor in the eating disorder field. I loved every moment of my brief experience in the ED world; however, I am an educator at heart, and Hebron Valley quickly became my new home! When I am not working, you can find me spending time with my friends and family (which includes my dog, Bandit), greeting at the doors of Heartland Church in Carrollton, running, or reading.

Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Peña, illustrated by Christian Robinson

Every Sunday after church, CJ and his grandma ride the bus across town. But today, CJ wonders why they don't own a car like his friend Colby. Why doesn’t he have an iPod like the boys on the bus? How come they always have to get off in the dirty part of town? Each question is met with an encouraging answer from grandma, who helps him see the beauty—and fun—in their routine and the world around them.

Mental Health Matters

Taking proactive measures to ensure our personal mental health and wellness has never been more important. Recently, the Hebron Valley staff was unofficially issued a Wellness Bingo challenge.

Send in pictures of you and/or your families when you earn a bingo; I'd love to celebrate you!

Ask an Expert Video Series

In 2018, LISD launched Ask-an-Expert, a video series aimed at helping parents continue crucial conversations with their children at home. Throughout the year, our counselors share their expertise with you, touching on some of the most important issues our students face today.

Talk, listen, and keep the conversation going. #askLISD
