My name is Lisa Algaze and I am the 8th Grade Lead Counselor. I am starting my 17th year as a school counselor. I began my career in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where I served as a high school counselor for 3 years. I moved to The Woodlands, Texas in 2007 and was a high school counselor in Conroe ISD until I joined the Klein family 3 years ago to open the beautiful Hofius campus. My husband is an associate principal at a high school in Conroe ISD and together we have two boys who keep us very busy!
