Mrs. Tina Barnes (Es-Le)

I am a 1988 Cleburne High School graduate, so I am very proud to be working at the high school that developed my love for education.  I received my bachelor's degree from Texas A&M University and my Master's of Counseling Degree and Licensed Professional Counselor license from Tarleton State University.  

My husband of 30 years also grew up in Cleburne. We have raised both our children here, we live and believe in our community and are happy to serve every day. I am always available to help you or your child in any way I can.

Mr. Ruben Duarte (Li-Ri)

I have been in education for 17 years and this is my 2 nd year at CHS. I previously worked in Fort Worth
ISD as a middle and high-school counselor. My awesome wife and I have been married for 20 years, we
have two amazing children ages 16 and 13, and two incredibly sweet dogs. I enjoy coffee, sports, and
spending time with family and friends. I am excited to help guide our CHS students in their high school
journey and preparation for purposeful lives after high school. Go Yellow jackets!

Ms. Jennifer Cox (Ro-Z)

I am honored to be a Cleburne High School Counselor, and I love working with our students, parents, teachers, and community members. In 2009, I started my career as a Special Education Teacher and later became an English Co-Teacher. While I loved teaching, my heart was always being pulled to counseling. I have such a strong desire to help others, especially youth. Helping our students realize their full potential and being that encouraging voice for them is my dream job. 

I have 5 children that are all part of Cleburne ISD, so I am a proud Yellowjacket mom too! My kids have learned so much from the teachers and staff on our campuses over the years, and they have thrived here. We are TRULY ALL IN! I am excited to be a part of this wonderful community and can’t wait for this school year to start.
