Hello Santan Families! My name is Vanessa Pepoon and I would like to introduce myself as the School Counselor at Santan Elementary. I look forward to working with you and your students in this role and will make every effort possible to provide the students of Santan with the support they need to be their best selves, now and for years to come.

My Education and Professional Background

I started in Chandler Unified School District in 2019 and I couldn’t be more thrilled to make Santan home. I am a Northern California native and moved to Arizona with my family in June of 2019. I attended San Jose State University for my undergraduate, majoring in Psychology with a minor in Child Development. I then went on to get my Master's degree in School Counseling at Brandman University.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe when students are at their best, socially, emotionally, and developmentally, the possibilities are limitless. It is my goal to ensure all students receive the support and tools they need to be successful, not only in the classroom, but in life as well. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email. I am excited for this school year, and look forward to working with you and your student. Let’s make this year the best yet!
