Miss Kelly Kelso

I was born and raised in Hereford and earned my diploma from Hereford High School. I am a graduate of Texas Tech University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Multidisciplinary Science. After teaching 7th and 8th grade science in Mesquite, TX for six years I earned my Master’s degree in Counseling from Texas A&M at Commerce.


I moved back to Hereford in 2006 and taught Chemistry and Biology at HHS before becoming the counselor at Tierra Blanca and Northwest Elementary Schools. Several years ago HISD allowed each campus to have their own counselor and I was assigned to Northwest.  I am starting my 22nd year in education and my 15th year as a counselor.


I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, golfing, and fishing in the mountains. I love watching Texas Tech football games and supporting the Herd athletics.
