Hi Mustangs! My name is Deyanira Chavez and I’m Reilly's counselor! This is my 16th year in education working with elementary students. I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a Business degree. A year later, I decided to go back to school to earn a second degree in Education. In May 2017, I got my Master's of Education in School Counseling from Our Lady of the Lake University. I have a passion for helping others, so please feel free to contact me anytime—my door is always open!
I am the Austin Regional Day School Program for the Deaf School Guidance Counselor. It is an honor to work with the Reilly Elementary community. In addition to school counseling, I have experience as a teacher working with elementary students and hearing impaired students from birth to high school. I have had work experience in Texas, Connecticut and for the Department of Defense Dependent Schools in Germany. What I enjoy about school counseling is being part of the process that inspires students to achieve their personal best, both academically and socially. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
