School Counselor Appreciation Week - RFMS - Patricia Frost and Gail Roaten

Gail Roaten
Gail Roaten
In honor of School Counseling Appreciation Week, we would like to spotlight our ACISD Counselors throughout this week. Today, we celebrate the RFMS Counselors, Patricia Frost and Gail Roaten.

 

Patricia Frost has been in education for 18 years and has shared this with us…

 

In what areas of education have you worked: I am in my second year as a school counselor. Over a 16 year period, I was a 2nd grade self-contained teacher and taught 5th-7th grade Reading. I am a certified ESL and GT teacher and have been a Reading department head and team leader. I have also coached middle school volleyball and track.

 

What are you most proud of: I am proud that after 14 years of teaching and raising four children I was able to go to graduate school and earn my Master's degree in school counseling. I have maintained a 4.0 GPA in both undergraduate and graduate level work. This fact I am particularly proud of because I was not a strong student in high school. It wasn't until I was a teacher for several years that I realized I was ADD. I have developed my own coping skills over the years which has helped me help my students.

 

What is your favorite part about being a school counselor: I love empowering students to be problem solvers and find solutions to their own problems. It was really rewarding this year when a problem was brewing between a couple of 8th grade girls. By the time I met with the girls, they told me they were able to work it out just like I showed them last year. (YAY!) I have also had students share with me times when they remembered to use mindfulness to get through a situation, however, they don't call it mindfulness, they call it "that breathing thing you showed us". I love that I get the opportunity to work with students over a longer period of time and watch them grow!

 

What is a goal you have: My goal for this school year is for Rockport-Fulton Middle School to be recognized as a CREST counseling program (Counselors Reinforcing Excellence for Students in Texas) by the Texas Counseling Association.

 

Gail Roaten has been in education for 42 years and had this to say…

 

In what areas of education have you worked: I taught preschool (was first at ABC school), 3rd-5th grade, 6th science, 7th -8th science & math, high school special education and graduate level counseling classes for 13 years.

 

What I am most proud of: 1) raising three wonderful, happy, and responsible children, and, 2) seeing my former students, whether at the public school level or graduate level, having a fulfilling and successful life.

 

My favorite part of being a school counselor: building quality relationships with my students and assisting them in coping, watching students become successful in their education, and moving toward their life goals.

 

Fun fact: I love riding my Honda scooter around Rockport!
