Welcome to my webpage.
My name is Martha Leal. I have lived in the beautiful town of Bastrop for 18 years. I am married to my best friend, and have three beautiful children and five precious grandchildren. In addition, we share our home with two turtles, three dogs, two chickens, and a rooster. To some, these may be pets, but to us they are members of our family. I have worked for Bastrop ISD since 2008. I taught first grade for seven years and have been the school counselor since 2016. I received my Bachelors of Science in Applied Sociology from Texas State University-San Marcos, and my Masters in Counseling from Lamar University.
I believe students are the future as they will impact our country and its progression. I believe ALL students are to be taught utilizing the highest state standards, and deserve an equitable education. As a counselor I will value and respect all students as people, and not view them simply as data. I believe that all students can learn, and that diversity should be celebrated. I will work with all stakeholders to make sure to provide a comprehensive school counseling program that best fits the needs of our student body.
