School Counselor

  • About Mrs. Kuban
    I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Bridlewood family! I grew up in Iowa where I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. Upon graduating, I taught in Plano, Texas while receiving my Master of Science in School Counseling. I have been both an elementary and middle school counselor. During my free time, my husband and I like to go to Rangers games and spend time with family and friends. I have three children:  Kennedy, turned three this past June, Kelsie will turn 2 in November, and we just welcomed Kason in August.
