Hello and welcome to a new school year! My name is Lisa Parrish and I am the school guidance counselor for Ann Whitney Elementary. I am beginning my 27th year in education. I am a 1987 graduate of Hamilton High School. I graduated from Tarleton State University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with specializations in physical education and reading. I also have an endorsement in early childhood education. I earned my Master of Education in Guidance and Counseling from Tarleton State University in 1996. I have taught pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade at the elementary level. I have also taught home economics and public speaking at the high school level.
