Counselor's Corner

Welcome to the Counselor’s Corner!  My name is Ms. de la Cruz and I am the counselor at Wilson Elementary.  It has been my pleasure to work with our community of students and parents at McAllen ISD for the past 18 years.  I get to work with our students during classroom guidance as well as individual and group counseling lessons.  My goals as a counselor are to help all children develop their ability to be aware, in control, express their emotions and to handle interpersonal relationships with good judgement and empathy. 

To help achieve this I utilize McAllen ISD STEAM framework that includes Emotional Intelligence and 7 competencies made up of the following:

· Critical Thinking, Problem Solving & Decision Making

· Creativity & Innovation

· Social, Cultural, Global & Environmental responsibility

· Communication

· Digital & Technological fluency

· Lifelong Learning, Personal Management & Well-being

· Collaboration & Leadership


These 7 competencies help to develop a child’s self-awareness, motivation, empathy and social skills.


If you would like to contact me, please call me at 956-971-4525.
