Students Who May Need CIS Assistance

While no student is exactly the same, students who may need support from CIS-SA are students with multiple absences, those with behavioral problems or conflict with other students, those that show signs of needing additional support, students in need of social services as well as students who show signs of trauma.

Please contact me by phone or email to refer a student to receive CIS-SA services.

About Me:

Hi! My name is Jacquelyn Reese. As the CIS-SA Site Coordinator on your campus, I want to partner with you to identify challenges our students face in class or at home and coordinate with community partners to bring outside resources into school. From immediate needs like food or clothing, to more complex ones like counseling or emotional support, I do whatever it takes to help students succeed.  Within a school year, my goal is to provide quality case-management to about 85 students.

Education I went to the University of Texas at San Antonio and got my Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, then my Master’s degree in Sociology from Texas State University.

Hobbies – I love singing and recording music.

Favorite part of my job – Learning & connecting with students.

Fun Fact – I fed raccoons on the beach in the Bahamas.
