Hi, I'm Amee Childers, and I am blessed to continue working with the fabulous children and parents at Rucker Elementary as your guidance counselor. This is my ninth year serving in Prosper I.S.D. Prior to that I taught grades 7-12 English Language Arts. I graduated from West Texas A&M University with a Master of Education in Counseling in 2010 and received my undergraduate degree from there as well.
I have two amazing children. My son graduated from UNT and is currently pursuing his certification in P.E./elementary education. My daughter, who starts driving this year (keep me in your prayers), keeps me busy with all things sports related. We stay active with sporting events, thrill seeking - roller coasters, zip lining, you name it - and enjoying the great outdoors. They are definitely my inspiration in this journey called life!
I have a passion for helping young people deal with the pressures of our modern world while cultivating servant hearts. It is my goal to encourage understanding and acceptance of self and others, as well as develop a growth mindset to help prepare our students for success both in school and life. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me to set up an appointment. I look forward to visiting with you!
