(832) 223-1705

My name is Monica Farrell and I am excited to be the school counselor at Hutchison Elementary School!  I was previously in Fort Bend ISD for 13 years as a Reading Specialist, ESL Specialist, and First Grade Teacher. I graduated from Lamar University with a Master’s degree in Education in School Counseling. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Mississippi Valley State University.  

My job at Hutchison is to make sure that all of our students are academically and socially successful not only here at school but also in their personal home life. I work with students, teachers, administrators and parents to create a positive school experience and ensure our students are striving to be their best selves every day. I truly believe that being a school counselor is the best job on earth and love every minute of it.

Counseling Resources

Individual Counseling 

All students must deal with difficult issues sometime during their school career. These concerns sometimes include conflicts with other students as well as stressful family changes. The counselor is here to help students work through individual problems they may be facing in order to help them be successful here at school.

Group Counseling

Group counseling provides a unique opportunity for students to be encouraged by others at the same age who are facing similar problems. Counseling groups are offered according to the needs of students and may include such issues as bullying, divorce, grief, self-esteem and friendship.

Classroom Guidance Lessons

The most effective way to meet the needs of the greatest number of students is through providing classroom guidance lessons. These lessons may be led by the Counselor or the classroom teacher. They include topics that are relevant to the entire school population such as character education, conflict resolution skills, career development, studying and test taking skills and drug prevention.
