• Ta Shunda Joiner


    Greetings, My name is Ta Shunda Joiner and I am proud to say that I’ve been servicing students here in the Alief ISD for 19 years. My background and education is Interdisciplinary Studies, School Counseling and Educational Leadership which allowed me opportunities to support students at Youens Elementary for 10 years in various roles and 7 ½ years at Hastings/Elsik Ninth Grade Centers supporting the Campus Intervention program Campus Learning Center(CLC) working directly with struggling students turning their struggles into hope. The years of experience prepared me to work effectively at the Alief Learning Center as the Elementary/Intermediate Academic Counselor.  My passion for working with children, youth, parents and staff drives me daily to become a change agent in the work place as well as the community. Helping students, staff and parents understand their worth and value is critical in developing support systems.  I believe allowing individuals to know that they have value and that they matter is most important for productivity in life.
