My name is Marilyn Oliphant. I am passionate about the field of education. Princeton ISD is the third school district I have been employed at. I started out in Plano ISD in 1999 as a Special Education Resource Teacher and worked into a role of a Special Education Lead teacher. I moved to Mckinney ISD in 2016 and worked with students as a Special Education teacher in a Resource setting, and FAC/STC classroom . I also worked for two summers with High School students as an Assistant Principal for a summer school program.
My education background includes a Masters of Science in Counseling and Guidance from Texas A&M Commerce and Bachelors in Psychology from Texas Woman's University. My professional certifications include: School Counselor, Educational Administration, Special Education, and English Second Language.
I am excited about my role as a School Counselor at Lowe Elementary. I am always enthusiastic to serve in whatever capacity to serve students and staff. I love to inspire others and am excited about watching the lives of students transform as they grow socially and emotionally. I believe that developing positive relationships and school culture are crucial among staff and students and are a prerequisite before we can have successful school experiences. My motto as an educator is - - “Kids don’t care what we know, unless they know we CARE!”
