Michaela Dotson
Counselor for Students A-M
I am Michaela Dotson, the TSA Counselor. I started my career in education in 2011 and have been in Tomball ISD since 2013. I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and Special Education.  In 2014, I received my Masters of Education in School Counseling from the University of St. Thomas.
I am here to meet your students' college and career and social-emotional needs.  I have an open-door policy; students are always welcome to drop in at any time. Parents may simply contact me and schedule an appointment. Make sure you check out the many resources I have posted for you. I look forward to working with each of you!
Shannon Gutierrez
Counselor for Students N-Z

As a first-generation college student, I believe in the transformative power of public education.  I have over 20 years of experience in education across all grade levels, working as a teacher, specialist and school counselor.  I love building relationships with students and families and being part of Team Tomball.  I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University (WHOOP!) and a Master’s degree in School Counseling from the University of Texas at Tyler.  

 I am so excited to have the opportunity to serve the students and staff at Tomball Star Academy!
