Meet Mrs. Gifford

Hello to all my Whitehouse Wildcats!


My name is Jenica Gifford, and I am the school counselor at Stanton-Smith Elementary! This is my 19th year in education. This will be my 11th year in Whitehouse ISD! 


I grew up in Tyler, TX my entire life! I love living in East Texas! I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in 2004 with my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. I graduated from the University of Texas at Tyler in 2011 with my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I completed my school counselor program in 2019 from Angelo State University.


I look forward to an amazing year at Stanton-Smith Elementary!
