Counselor's Office

  • Welcome to my webpage. 
    My name is Martha Leal.  I have lived in the beautiful town of Bastrop for over 20 years.  I am married to my best friend, and have three beautiful children and seven precious grandchildren.  In addition, we share our home with four small dogs, three 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 at LPE since 2016.  I received my Bachelors of Science in Applied Sociology from Texas State University-San Marcos, and my Masters degree in Counseling from Lamar University. 
    I believe students are our 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.
