Ms. Moran

My name is Sarah Moran.  I hold a BFA in Modern Dance as well as a Masters in Secondary Education from Texas Christian University.  This is my 16th year in education and my 3rd year as a school counselor.  Throughout my career I worked mostly with Special Education, Bilingual and ESL students and families at various levels K-12.  I served as the middle school counselor at Pinkston High School for two years before joining the incredible counseling team at Thomas Jefferson High School in 2020.

I have a passion for helping immigrant and at-risk students gain access to our educational system which will prepare them for the colleges and universities they envision attending as well as the careers they wish to pursue.  I love to help students find their unique gifts and special abilities.  I want every student here at TJ to be successful academically and socially.  I want to see every student achieve their academic goals in life!

I enjoy learning different languages and about different cultures.  I am a non-native Spanish-speaker and am currently learning Hindi.  In my free time, I enjoy studying and performing Spanish flamenco and playing the castanets.
