Special Education Homebound Teacher, Goose Creek CISD
My name is Lakeshia Roberson and I am 27 years old. I currently work for an engineering firm as a project administrator. I have been with the company for four years. I currently attend Lamar University’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling Master’s program. Never in a million years did I think I would have made it this far because I started going to college late and worked full time. I realized I wanted to go to college while working at an insurance company. I was 21 years old when I realized I wanted more out of life. My dream job was to become a psychologist, and since I was getting a late start at the age of 21 and working full-time, I knew this would be hard. But I pulled it together and found a university that would accommodate my work schedule and allow me to earn my degree.
Once I became close to graduating, I had to search for a master’s program that would also allow me to work full time and go to school, which was a challenge. After emailing numerous schools and being told that they didn’t have anything that would fit my program criteria, I gave up until that one day something told me to give it another try. After searching the internet again, Lamar University popped up with a 100 percent clinical mental health counseling online program. I was in disbelief and called the school immediately to confirm that this program was online, and indeed it was. I have been going to Lamar for five months and I don’t regret applying.

This has been a tough month with everything going on with Harvey, but I am glad to say things finally fell in line with classes. I am on my 2nd year of my master’s in clinical mental health counseling, and I am pleased to say that I am almost done with my consultation class.
Final Summer Class

I am in my final summer class for the summer semester of my degree. I must say I have obtained a lot of knowledge and feel more and more prepared to apply my knowledge to the field I plan on working in very soon.
What a Great Online Class
July 17, 2017
So I just wrapped up with my last class that was over the Human Life Span. Although I have had many classes here that I have enjoyed taking, I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this class.

This course I am taking is human development, and I am actually learning a lot. I am on week three and have already learned the important stages of development for the human mind.
Ethics & Law in Counseling
May 18, 2017
I finally wrapped up my last course for the spring semester, which was Ethics & Law in Counseling. Before entering this course I assumed that it would be just a refresher from a previous course I had taken in the fall semester that touched on some ethics and laws in the counseling field.

Since I am in the clinical mental health counseling master’s program, I am required to take two residencies throughout the whole program. I finally got a chance to take my spring one, and I will say it was a tough cookie.
Multicultural Counseling Course

This semester I am taking my multicultural counseling course, and I must say this is very exciting.

February 22, 2017
I finally finished my CNDV/5334 Measurement Assessment class, and I must say, this was not an easy class.
