Your Family Specialist
Degrees and Certifications:
“Happiness…consists in giving, and in serving others.”
My name is Maribel Lacey, M.Ed, and I have been an educator since 1995. Since that day, I have had the opportunity to guide, nurture and educate students. However, getting to know families and building trustworthy relationships has been rewarding and essential.
I have been a Family Specialist since 2008 in NEISD. It is an honor to have the opportunity to work with students and especially families. I enjoy empowering families with knowledge and skills to be the best version of themselves. My desire is to assist individuals and families with the necessary resources to meet their needs.
Feel free to stop by or attend any workshops. I am looking forward in meeting you and be of service to you in any possible way.
