Counseling Center

 Mrs. Jenna Ballard
 Guidance Counselor

 I am excited to be able to serve the students, parents, and   staff of Baxter Elementary! I am looking forward to meeting   all of you and supporting you in whatever way I can. My   passion is to love kids and help them to be successful in life as well as their academics.  My husband and I have two boys and are Midlothian residents. I completed my undergrad at Oklahoma State University, (GO POKES) in education, and my masters at Lamar University, in school counseling. My family and I love sports and the outdoors, and we often travel back to Oklahoma to see my family. I have been in education now for six years and five of those in the wonderful district of MISD.

I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and being part of the Baxter Family.

Character Education


We believe in building character first, so that each student can be successful.

Our 3 C’s of COURAGE, CHARACTER, AND COMMITMENT are the foundation of our character education program at T. E. Baxter.

We strive for all of our students to be able to define and show COURAGE, CHARACTER, AND COMMITMENT.
