Mrs. Kelly Temple
Hello, my name is Kelly Temple and I am currently a Counselor for the Media Arts Community at Ball High School. I graduated from Lamar University in 2007 and began my career working as a Special Education Teacher and loved every minute of it. I can only hope that my students learned as much from me as I did from them. I did not originally set out to be a counselor, however, after working with my students, my passion for student advocacy grew. As a counselor, my goal is to help students flourish in all areas of life. My counseling approach is to meet the needs of all students holistically. I want to be their voice in the time of need until they have the necessary skills to speak up for themselves.
Beyond the school counseling role, I am a wife and mother of four beautiful children who remind me every day how truly precious life is. I do believe that this role has prepared me to be a person that values the students that I will be helping on a daily basis. All in all, I’m extremely blessed to be in a career that allows me to showcase the passion that I have to make children believe how successful they can be in life. GO TORS!
