About Me: 

My name is Mary Jane Anderson and I am the school counselor at Martin Elementary. This is my sixth year with Crandall ISD and my first year as a school counselor. Prior to becoming a school counselor, I taught fourth and sixth grade. I am thrilled to serve the students and families of Martin Elementary. 

My philosophy is built around creating and maintaining positive relationships with the students I serve daily. I am a firm believer in Maslow before Bloom and work to help students become the best version of themselves through positive interactions and intentional learning. My goal as a school counselor is to effectively work with students to make a positive impact on their lives through their academic, social, and emotional development. 

If you have any questions, or would like to schedule a time to talk, please contact me. You can reach me via email, manderson@crandall-isd.net or by phone at 972-427-6020 ext. 5105. 

Martin Elementary Counseling Program: 

The following are the service components that make up the comprehensive school counseling program here at Martin Elementary. Services that are provided are tailored to meet the needs of the students on our campus. 

Guidance Lessons: I deliver guidance lessons on a monthly basis to all students.  Guidance lessons are created and designed in order to help students grow, develop, and gain transferable skills as it relates to education, career, personal, and social development. 

Responsive Services: At times, students need additional support in order to help them during times of need. Short term individual counseling as well as small group counseling is offered on an as needed basis to all students.  

Individual Student Planning: Individual planning is available to help students in their development as well as to learn further skills to help them work towards meeting academic, personal, social, and future career goals. 

System Support: This service component is designed around indirect services that allow for time to plan, organize, implement, and manage the school counseling program in order to evaluate and refine areas to best equip students for success.
