Ms. Teffiney A. Terrell

Hello, I am Teffiney Terrell, LMSW and I am excited to serve you as the Social and Emotional Learning Specialist (SEL) at Ira Cross, Jr. Elementary School this 2023-2024 school year.  
Prior to this role, I was a site coordinator for Communities in Schools for six years, where I worked with middle school and high school students to overcome barriers, learn life skills, and plan for post-high school success.  
 Most recently, I served as a special education social worker for Killeen Independent School District for 2 1/2 years. I provided educational-based counseling to special education students based on their individual goals.  
I obtained my bachelor’s degree in social work from Texas A&M University-Central Texas and my master’s degree in social work from Our Lady Lake University. I am a mother to four daughters and Mimi to five grandsons.  
The mission of the Killeen Independent School District Counseling Program is to advocate, support, collaborate and build relationships to empower all students to acquire academic, career, personal, and social competencies to make every student future ready.
