Welcome to the Garcia counseling corner! It is my personal belief that all students possess the ability to be successful when given the proper tools and opportunities. My goal is to provide an environment that helps students reach their fullest potential in a fun and creative way that develops a love for learning and a heart for serving.

The role of the School Counselor
As the school counselor I am a trained professional who works as part of your child's team. I work in partnership with students, teachers, parents, and the community to help your child be successful and have a positive school experience. I understand that each child is different. Some students just need someone to listen, whereas others may need help in developing problem solving and decision-making skills. Whatever the concern, I am here to listen to each student and to help him/her feel safe and comfortable at school.
Sometimes parents need support and guidance as well. School counselors are also trained to work with parents and can be seen as a great resource to the parents and school staff. The mission of the Counseling Office is to promote student success by providing academic, career, personal, and social counseling.
