• . Lisa Holdbrook

     Hello! My name is Lisa Holdbrook and this is my 8th year as the Counselor at Alkek Elementary. Before joining the Alkek team, I was the Special Education counselor for MS and HS. I earned my Bachelors degree from St. Mary's University and my Masters in Counseling and Licensed Professional Counselor at UTSA. I live in Bergheim with my husband Kelly and have two college-age children, Gage and Alexandra.

    As school counselor, I provide individual and group counseling, classroom character lessons, parent conferencing, teacher support, crisis intervention, ADHD and academic/behavioral assessments. I am also the campus STAAR testing, ESL, Section 504 and At-Risk coordinator. I am also involved in RTI and parent conferences and any supports as needed.

    The main guidance themes for this year are College & Career readiness and bullying prevention. There will be classroom lessons and school-wide activities to support these. We had a very successful career day last May and are planning an even better one this year! Be on the lookout for future information that your child will be bringing home. Our monthly themes are as follows:


    September – Back to School!

    October – Drug & Bullying Prevention

    November – Thankfulness

    December – College Awareness

    January – Graduation Pathways

    February – Random Acts of Kindness

    March – Wellness & Appreciation

    April – Reach for the STAARS!

    May – Career Pathways



    It is my honor and pleasure to have the opportunity to support your wonderful children.  If you have any questions or would like to schedule   an appointment, you can call me at (830) 796-6226 or email me at lholdbrook@banderaisd.net.
