About My Role

Our Approach: Counselors in the Classroom

The NEISD Counselors teach guidance lessons in the classroom to support and enhance the learning process.  Some of the topics include:

  • Coping Skills - Help equip students with the skills they need to address anxiety, frustration, anger, sadness, and a variety of other stressful emotions in healthy ways.
  • Healthy Relationships - Help students identify and recognize healthy and unhealthy relationships, and teach them the skills to make positive choices.
  • Bullying/Cyberbullying - Help students learn all aspects of bullying/cyberbullying, and focus on prevention and character education. 
  • Self-Awareness - Teach students how to be aware of their own thoughts and feelings, and how to self-regulate their emotions and responses.

    Hello! My name is Lillian Matutes and I am the Counselor at the Pre-K Academy at West Avenue. I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Universidad de Oriente, Santiago de Cuba, Cuba in 2001 and with a M.A. in Counseling from Wayland Baptist University in 2011. I joined the NEISD family in 2008 and taught Pre-K for a few years before becoming a School Counselor. During my leisure time I enjoy reading and spending time with my family outdoors.

    Some of the exciting things about my job is that it allows me to be flexible, creative, and learn from children. There is never a dull moment at the Pre-K Academy!

    I welcome you to our school and wish you and your children a very successful school year!
