Counseling Team


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!
