Hello Parents and Students!  My name is Elsa Ortiz and I am so excited to be a Jackson-Keller Jackrabbit!  This is my 13th year in education.  I have worked as a second, third and fourth grade teacher and now as your school counselor.
I grew up in Pearsall, TX and moved to San Antonio to attend college at UTSA.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (Early Childhood) from The University of Texas at San Antonio, a Master of Educational Leadership from Concordia University in Austin and lastly my a Masters in Guidance Counseling from San Angelo University. 
When I am not at school, I enjoy exercising, reading, shopping and most of all, spending time with my family. 
My schedule varies daily, but my main responsibilities include: classroom guidance, individual and group counseling, coordinating state testing.  During the 2019-2020 school year, I will work with students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades.
