Counseling » Counselor


Hello!  My name is Mrs. R. Cano and I am Marcell Elementary’s school counselor.  I attended Waitz Elementary, K. White JR. High, and graduated from Mission High School.  After receiving a full scholarship to Texas A&M University College Station, I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Psychology and a minor in Spanish.  I, then, worked on my Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling through the Dell Scholars Program at the University of Texas Pan American.   I am a firm believer that education is a gift that no one can take away and that is at everyone’s reach if willing to pursue it.  I love my career as a school counselor and I am absolutely passionate about assisting our students make good choices and motivating them to believe that they too can go to college and follow their dreams.


As the school counselor, I work with my students on topics such as personal safety, self-confidence, anger management, responsible choices, drug awareness, tolerance, bullying and harassment.  These are just to name a few since there are many other areas that I provide support and guidance to our students to assist them with their academic and personal/social development.  I am a very proud Marcell Eagle School Counselor and love working with my students, parents, and staff.

If you can't run, then walk.
If you can't walk, then crawl.
But whatever you do, keep moving.”
