    DSES Counselors' Corner

    Michelle Tasin

    My name is Michelle Tasin, and I am so excited to be your school counselor here at DSE! I am from Houston, TX and I played college softball at Centenary College of Louisiana where I majored in psychology. I began my education career in East Texas teaching kindergarten for 2 years in Gilmer ISD. I then moved to Austin where I obtained another kindergarten teaching position in Lake Travis ISD alongside completing my internship for school counseling. I graduated with my Masters in School Counseling and LPC from Lamar University, and I also hold a Certified Mental Performance Coach Certification. This will be my second year as school counselor and second year as counselor here at DSE! Outside of school, I coach softball and volleyball, and I love spending time outside working out, being with my puppy, and being with my family. I look forward to continuing working with the students, families, and staff in Dripping Springs! Go Tigers!! 

    Gabriela Mora

    I'm the new Mental Health Professional and very excited to be here. I studied Psychology at St. Edward's and received a Masters in Counseling from UTSA. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor and love working in schools and helping students and their families.
    I have more than 15 years of working in mental health and for the past 6 have worked with school districts to develop and provide services to students. I can't wait to meet you and have the opportunity to support our children.  I'll be providing an extra layer of support for some of our students. 
    For fun I enjoy jogging, hiking, camping and exploring state parks with my family. I hope to meet you soon and I'm looking forward to a wonderful year!
