Counselor's Message

    Message from Counselor, Patti McCarthey

    I am excited to be a part of the Houchin family.  I have been a teacher/counselor in the Moore School District for the last 23 years.  

    The guidance program at Houchin consists of classroom lessons, group lessons, and individual guidance.   I will be working with the students to be the best they can be academically, socially, and emotionally.  My goal is to help students with their self-esteem, problem solving skills, coping abilities, and study/test taking strategies.   We will be discussing many topics this year including:

    Bullying and violence prevention

    Drug and alcohol prevention

    Decision-making skills 

    Character building

    Cyber Safety 



    Students are always welcome into my office/classroom and may come on their own, through teacher referral or parent referral.  
    Please feel free to contact me anytime at 735-4198 or e-mail 
     I look forward to working with you and our students.
