My name is Trina Brown I entered the field of Education with a history of Retail Management that has given me a great deal of experience in problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork and training teams.
I began my career here in Allen in 2008. I was a teacher in the PAS (Positive Attitudes for Success) Program at the Lowery Freshman Center for four years before I became a school counselor. As a PAS teacher, I used various techniques such as individualized instruction, problem-solving assignments, small-group work, and supportive exercises involving music, art, exercise and relaxation techniques to promote learning, improve self-understanding, self-esteem, and self-control. The assessment and systematic teaching of social skills through modeling, discussion, and role-play were frequently used to help students increase control over their behavior, develop positive relations with others, and improve their academic performance in the classroom.
