Marla August

I am Marla August the new School Counselor at Lexington Creek Elementary! I am so excited to be a part of the Lion pride. This will be my 17th year as an educator, and my 15th year as part of the Fort Bend ISD family.

I grew up in Katy where I attended Bear Creek Elementary, Mayde Creek Jr High and High School. I attended Prairie View A & M University and graduated with a degree in Finance. I started my professional career in Financial Services and Insurance, before deciding that I wanted to make a difference in the lives of children, as so many wonderful educators did for me! In 2004, I entered into an alternative certification program and obtained my teacher certification. This was the best 2nd best career decision I ever made! I have worked on the elementary level my entire career and I love working with young children!  

In 2016, I received my Masters’ in School Counseling from Houston Baptist University and I am currently in the process of obtaining my License for Professional Counseling in Mental Health with the State of Texas. Now, I am your new Counselor, the #1 best career decision I have ever made!

After practicing yoga since 2011, I became a certified yoga instructor in 2019! My hobbies include practicing yoga and instructing spin, strength, and yoga at SpEnga, a boutique fitness studio in Sugar Land. I love spending time with my family. I love outdoor cycling with my son and watching him practice gymnastics! I love traveling and watching dramatic and romance movies!  I also have a cat named Licorice!  Life is Good!

Please reach out with any questions or concerns. I am here to help!
