Jerry Daniels, College Counselor

Dr. Jerry Daniels graduated from East Texas State (Texas A&M Commerce) with a Bachelors of Science Degree in 1983. He completed a Masters of Science Degree from East Texas State the following year. He completed his PhD at Texas A&M University in 1994.

Dr. Daniels taught agriculture science in Fort Bend ISD Sugar Land, Texas for 10 years. He was privileged to also teach at Houston Community College Northwest campus for a period of time. In 1996 Dr. Daniels was selected as Fort Bend ISD secondary teacher of the year.

He later spent one year in the field of computers when he assumed the role of Director of Technology for Buffalo ISD in Buffalo, Texas. The following year he was offered the position of Student Advisor and Lecturer at Texas A&M University.

This position allowed him to develop a detailed understanding of what is expected of the student at the secondary level of education as well as from institutions of higher learning. The years of working with high school and college youth in Fort Bend ISD and at Texas A&M revealed a need for intensive and individual advising for anyone seeking a college degree. Counselors at the high school and college level do an excellent job but may have several hundred students assigned to their care. The focus of the educational consultant is to concentrate on the needs of the individual student. We provide guidance in academic areas that bridge the gap between what was learned in high school and understanding the complexities of higher education.

Dr. Jerry Daniels is a former educator from the secondary and college level. He became an Independent College Advisor in 2006 and has continued to work with teens and their families to get the most from their college experience.
