Hello! My name is Heather Lincecum and I am excited to be be returning to the counseling staff at Community High School this year! I graduated from Texas A&M University in 1999 and, after a short stint in the moving business, began my teaching career in 2001. I spent 14 years in the classroom teaching high school science and have worked with students at all levels. I finished my master’s degree in counseling in December 2014 from Lamar University and have worked as a counselor since!
I am an educator because I love the daily rewards and challenges of working with kids! As a classroom teacher, I wanted a way to share my love of science with future generations and see the excitement in their face when they finally are able to understand how the world around them works! After 10 years in the classroom I found myself acting as a mentor more than a teacher for most of my students and I thoroughly enjoyed helping them find a path for their future. That is what led me to pursue my degree in school counseling and I find so much joy in helping students in the areas of academic success, emotional/social well-being and college/career readiness!
I have a beautiful daughter who will be starting 5th grade in Rockwall ISD. She keeps me busy with all of her activities, the latest of which being Taekwondo! If you see me at CHS activities you will probably get the chance to meet her as well!
