Tammy Lewis (Grades 1,3,5)
My name is Tammy Lewis, and I am excited to serve my GFAA families. This is my 4th year at Garner and my 9th year in education. I taught 2nd and 3rd grade prior to counseling, and I loved it. I enjoy counseling even more because I get to connect with ALL students, and teach them those valuable character traits they will carry for the rest of their lives.
Things you should know about me:
- I am originally from Baltimore so I have to be a Ravens fan.
- I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin so I get to wear burnt orange (Hook ‘em Horns).
- I love, love, love to travel! It’s my norm from growing up in a military family. I have no plans of living outside of Texas any time soon because the cost of living here is fabulous!
- My three amazing children, Emory (12), Ariana (11), and Joshua (10), all attended GFAA as well; so, I share your sentiments in how great our school is as your counselor, and as a parent!
My mission for the year is to work with you in developing a comprehensive counseling program that best prepares our students for social, academic, and career success. Mrs. Moon and I work closely together to ensure this happens by hosting several charity drives throughout the year, teaching character lessons every month, and promoting college and career readiness through college T-shirt days, career fairs, and exploring Career Cruising (a fun K-5 game where kids get to solve on-the-job problems and mysteries).
We need to hear from you! Please complete our Parent Needs Assessment so Mrs. Moon and I can get an idea of what you’d like to see happen for your students.
Feel free to contact me anytime with your questions, concerns, or simply to keep in touch. I look forward to this being a great school year!

Nikki Moon (Grades Pre-K/K, 2nd, 4th)
Hello GFAA family! My name is Nikki Moon and I am one of the two counselors at your child's school. This is my second year at GFAA but my tenth in Grand Prairie ISD. I have been a school counselor for seven year and have also worked as a Kindergarten teacher and Special Education counselor. I have 2 children and both of them go to school here (Avery is in 1st grade and Kamden is in the employee daycare). Not only am I a counselor, but also a fellow parent! I LOVE being a school counselor because I get to help all of the wonderful students here. Social Emotional learning is so important and I thoroughly enjoy teaching life skills through guidance lessons and small groups. My mission is to help your child reach their maximum level of academic achievement and we help facilitate that through our comprehensive guidance program. We also help organize charity events, promote college and career readiness and encourage student leadership. Please reach out to myself or my wonderful counseling partner, Ms. Tammy Lewis, if you have any questions, needs or concerns. We are all here to make sure that school is a wonderful experience for your child. I can't wait to meet and connect with our wonderful school family!
