Counseling 101

Everyday is an adventure with our Wall Middle School Students. I am grateful to learn and grow with them daily. As their counselor, I am here to support them in any way they need. This could be academically, socially & emotionally, or with college & career planning! All of this is accomplished in a variety of ways including classroom guidance lessons throughout the year, small group counseling, individual counseling, teacher collaboration, guest speakers, announcements and much more! I am blessed to partner with parents and the community to teach the whole student. We will cover things like time management, kindness, gratitude, integrity, respect, self control, empathy, compassion and just how to be an all around good citizen! Other responsibilities of mine include campus testing coordinator, UIL coordinator, and scheduling.

Please do not hesitate to call or email me with any questions you may have! 325-651-7790 ext.2234 or at

Want to know what's going on academically?

Ask your student about their Google Weekly Assignment sheet that can be found in any teachers' Google classroom page. Teachers list homework, quizzes and tests for the week. It is essentially an electronic planner!

A Little about Mrs. Tanner


I am starting my 18th year in education! My teaching career lead me to Wall 14 years ago where I  taught 4th grade math. I have been the Middle  School Counselor for 9 years. I love being around  students and helping shape our future leaders. My  husband Josh and I have 3 kiddos – Sloane 8th grade, Laetyn 6th grade, and Beckett is going into 2nd grade! We stay busy supporting our kids  in whatever they do and driving them to practices.  Being outdoors and camping is typically where you  can find us on a weekend. We love playing board  and card games and being with family and friends.

What's in your cup?

Please send clear or translucent water bottles to school with your students. Only water is allowed in the bottle when carried from class to class.

Cell Phone Policy

Students may bring cell phones to school; however they must follow the following rules:

  • Phones must completely be powered OFF during the school day which means from the time they enter a school building until the time they leave the building at the end of the day.

  • Phones must be kept in their backpack or locker and not on their body at anytime.

  • Phones are not to be in the bathrooms, locker rooms or at lunch.

  • Smart watches can be worn but are only to be used for checking the time.

  • Cell phone/smart watch violations will result in a detention and the student's device will be picked up and kept in the office.

Help us continue to teach students how to communicate in person by reiterating these rules. If you need to get a message to your student, please call the front office.
