Mrs. Denise Dean



Hello Warrior Parents and Students! I am excited to serve as your child’s counselor. I am counselor for grades 6th through 8th of students with the last names beginning with A-K. I have been a counselor for more than 20 years, and have served students in Alvin ISD for more than 12 of those 20 years. I have an awesome husband of 39 years and one awesome daughter.


Middle school students are inquisitive and unique. They are just beginning to embark upon their respective places in society. I am here to help your child transition from eager elementary students into confident secondary students. We have the expectation that our students will leave Manvel Junior High ready to take on the challenges of high school, college or wherever their paths may lead them. Though academia is paramount to educational success, there are social and emotional changes that occur as students make this transition.


The past few months have tested the emotional strength of us all. However, we are determined to rise up and garner resilience amidst the waves of uncertainty that we may face.  My office is a safe harbor for students to come and express their fears, frustrations, and doubts. Together, we will ride out the turbulent storms that may lie ahead.


Finally, as parents, you know your children better than anyone. I look forward to collaborating with you about your child or any other special concerns that may transpire throughout the school year. I am expecting great things in this year to come.
