Hello students and families of San Marcos Elementary! I am happy to join your community as your school counselor. Feel free to stop by or reach out by email or phone to find out how we help students become their very best.
My Education and Professional Background
I am fortunate to have worked doing what I love for over 20 years. I attended New Mexico State University where I earned a Bachelors degree in Psychology and Spanish, a Masters in School Counseling, and an Education Specialist in School Psychology. My career experience includes a variety of school settings in different states including New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, Washington D.C, and now Arizona.
My Educational Philosophy
As a school counselor, I am at San Marcos Elementary to help every child succeed and feel they are working to be the best student they can be. I believe students of all ages are problem-solvers and come with a wealth of knowledge and experiences that enrich our school community. I believe that everyday is a fresh start thus embrace and encourage each student to develop a growth mindset so that even when they have not mastered something, they can tell themselves, I can't do that....YET!
