Counseling Team

San Angelo ISD Families, 

During this unprecedented time in our community, we wanted to make you aware of resources that may be helpful to you or someone you know. 

We know it’s tough when your child’s routine is changed, especially when it happens unexpectedly. Sometimes that can lead to worry and anxiety or maybe your child has a million questions. As a parent, it can be difficult to know how to provide reassurance and address questions when it seems like there’s still so much that isn’t clear yet. Check out these links to help as you continue to address your child’s needs:

Karla McCallie - Counselor

My name is Karla McCallie.  I am the Transitional Counselor. I started at Carver Learning Center in 2016.  I work with all students on campus but primarily the long term students.  I want to make their transition back to their home campus as smooth as possible. I communicate with parents and the student’s Counselor, Assistant Principal and At-risk Coordinator on their home campus when they are close to being released from Carver.  I also communicate closely with teachers at Carver and make sure that students have completed withdrawal grades.

I thoroughly enjoy meeting each student. I love to explore career options with them. I check student’s academic credits and help them see where they are in their education career. Best of all, I love to listen to them and begin to see their hearts. I am happy to help a student any way I can to further them along into a productive young adult life.

I have had a great career in education with over 30 years of teaching and counseling students. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Education at West Texas A&M University, a Master’s Degree in School Counseling at Sul Ross State University. I also achieved a Principal’s Certification at Angelo State University. My teaching career began with Elementary PE, then 6th grade, and finally 4th grade. I have counseled at the elementary, junior high and high school levels. I have also worked several years with At-Risk students, specifically. They are my passion!

My husband, Brent, and I relocated to San Angelo in 2015 and we love living here!  Our son, Cade, is a junior at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas. 

I feel truly blessed to be a part of the Carver Learning Center family.


Yvonne Busenlehner - Counselor

Greetings and Salutations! My name is Yvonne Busenlehner, and I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to join this amazing team. My educational career began as a mom and blossomed into tutoring students at my daughter's elementary campus. From this experience, I found a passion in helping students achieve goals that they once felt were impossible. From there, I went back to college and obtained a Master's degree in Guidance and Counseling while also working to acquire my teacher certification. I taught for 7 years, and I loved every second of it. Moving into my new role as a counselor is a dream come true. I am excited to begin this new journey in life. I believe that every child deserves someone who will stand beside them and guide them through this rigorous thing we call life!
