Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Veronica Villegas and I am the Family Specialist at Madison High School. I started my journey as a NEISD Family Specialist in 2013. I want to share a little bit about my background. I have a B.A. in Psychology, M.A. in Guidance and Counseling and my M.Ed. in Special Education. Licensed Professional Counselor, this means that I am completing 3,000 to obtain my permanent license through the state (Supervised by Dr. Christie Melonson, LPC-S License #63872).
I have worked in the social services field since 2006. For more than 8 years, I have worked in an educational setting providing services for students, parents and teachers. I have had the opportunity to work with families all over San Antonio, providing Medicaid education, parenting education, case management and college readiness support. I have 4 years of experience working with an evidence-based behavioral model that addressed both prevention and intervention strategies for families and their children.
I organize and provide ongoing classes and workshops for the Madison Family Engagement Leadership Academy. I will also help organize and implement various events for the students and their families. In addition, I coordinate a variety of programs and services for our families.
