Welcome to another year at Magnolia H.S.  I am pleased to be the counselors for students with the last names begin with the letters A-D.   I've been a counselor at MHS since 1998.  I have both a Bachelor's and Masters from St. John's University in N.Y.  I also earned my Masters in Counseling from Sam Houston State University.  I'm happily married and the proud dad of an MHS and Texas Tech graduate.  I enjoy playing golf, watching sports, especially the Red Raiders and my beloved St. John's Red Storm.
Feel free to contact me with any questions at

College Visits

Junior year is the time to be looking at colleges and universities.  College Fairs are usually in October and the Houston National College Fair is held in the spring.  Look for the MISD ACT EXPO,  Armed Forces, College and Trades, in October
Juniors and Seniors are given 2 days each school year to visit campuses. Students may take 2 college days their Junior year and 2 college visit days their Senior year. 
In order to ensure that these are marked as College Visit days, students must provide documentation of their visit to the attendance office within 3 days of their college visit. This will ensure that the absence will be marked as a college visit.
