Mrs. Patricia Santos

Hello!  My name is Patricia L. Santos and I'm the Career Counselor at Wagner High School.  My credentials as a school counselor include 21 years in the field with 19 years at the high school level and two years at a middle school.  I am from Brownsville, Texas and after attending Texas Southmost College for two years, I transferred to UTSA to complete my Bachelor's degree.  I earned both my Bachelor and Master degrees from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).

During one of my business classes at UTSA, I remember one of my professors stating that at some point in our lives, we would have three careers.  This became a true statement for me.  I was fortunate to gain employment with Kellogg's Sales Company immediately after college in San Antonio, Texas where I gained valuable skills to bring to my second career in education.  I worked as a business teacher for six years and after completing my Master's degree in School Counseling, I found my true calling in counseling!

In order to ensure Wagner students can meet their career goals; I am available to assist with interest inventories and assessments, one-to-one appointments, career exploration resources, along with any other resources to help students prepare for the world-of-work.  For all the latest information regarding jobs, internships, summer programs and much more join our College and Career Google Classroom!
