Hi, my name is Sheila Holt, and I am excited for my eighth year as the school counselor. I am beginning my 25th year in education. This is my 10th year at Westbrook ISD, and my previous educational experiences were gained at Coahoma ISD and Lamesa ISD. Prior to becoming a counselor, I taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, First Grade, and Reading Intervention.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood, as well as my Master's Degree in Guidance and Counseling from Angelo State University.
My husband, Jay, and I have been married 23 years and have two children, Jayden and Conner. Jayden is attending Texas A&M University and Conner is a Junior at Westbrook ISD.
I will continue to update my page in order to provide valuable information to students and parents. Check out the links for college and career resources, as well as scholarship and financial aid opportunities. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
