Hello! My name is Ms. Montiel, and I am your new school counselor at Fulton Elementary. As your school counselor I will be an advocate for career development, academic achievement, social behavior, and mental and physical health for all students.I look forward to using my professional background knowledge in guidance counseling to cultivate a stimulating and supportive environment to allow the students Fulton Elementary to reach their fullest potential.
My Education and Professional Background
Originally from Texas I moved to Arizona in 2020. I attended the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley, and received a Bachelor's Degree in Science with a specialization in Biology. After receiving my bachelor's degree, I enrolled in a post-bachelorette program and received my state certification in science. My additional state certifications include school counseling k-12 and ESL Supplemental. I received my Masters of Education in Counseling and Guidance awarded on December 2017. I am certificated school counselor in both Arizona and Texas. I am a board certified Licensed Professional Counselor in Texas. Prior to becoming a school counselor, I taught 6th and 7th grade science. I also coached 7th and 8th grade girls' volleyball, softball and basketball. I enjoy learning, exploring and traveling. I just finished my first year as a school counselor and have lots to share and still lots to learn.
My Educational Philosophy
My counseling philosophy is based on grit and a growth mind set. Helping students embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as the path to mastery, learn from criticism, find lessons and inspiration in the success of others and develop a perspective that they do not understand it –YET. Providing the students to have a sense of belonging in the school environment, and having a positive attitude toward work and learning.
