Texas Tech

Meet The Counselor

  • Hi!  My name is Suzanne Gerstner and I am the counselor at Milam.  This is my fourth year as Milam's counselor.  Before becoming a counselor, I taught for 12 years as a Family and Consumer Science teacher at the middle/junior high school level.  As a teacher, I taught many of the topics I now perform as a counselor.  I received my undergraduate diploma from Texas Tech in, believe it or not, Fashion Design.  After having my four children, I decided education was where my heart belonged and went on to earn my teaching certification from the University of the Southwest. While teaching I developed a real love of wanting to help students and earned my Master's from Lamar University.  I have been married for 33 years to my husband, Mike, I love going to Texas Tech sporting events, traveling, time with my family (they live all over the place!), and I love being home with my dogs!!  I greatly enjoy what I do and love the students at Milam!
