Hello and Welcome to Alta Loma! 

My name is Kelly Kelso, I work alongside teachers and parents to help students develop socially and emotionally, and to help remove any barriers they have to learning!  

I was born and raised in Hereford and earned my diploma from Hereford High School. I am a graduate of Texas Tech University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Multidisciplinary Science. After teaching 7th and 8th grade science in Mesquite, TX for six years I earned my Master’s degree in Counseling from Texas A&M at Commerce.  I moved back to Hereford in 2006 and taught Chemistry and Biology at HHS before becoming the Counselor at Tierra Blanca and Northwest Elementary Schools.  This is my 24th year in education, 17th year as a Counselor, and first year in San Angelo ISD. 

I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, golfing, and fishing in the mountains. I love watching Texas Tech football games! 

 I look forward to serving your children & family to support the well-being of your learner.

It truly takes a team to make your child successful, so if you need anything please call me at 325-947- 3914 EXT 121 or email me at 

Hope you have a fantastic year! 

Kelly Kelso
