Welcome Back Tigers!!!
 
Looking forward to the start of my 14th year at Valencia High! I am assigned to letters A-I this year, of your students’ last, and continue to serve our ELD (English Language Development) program here at VHS. I am also the facilitator for our English Language Advisory Council (ELAC) and I am the Career Guidance Specialist for ROP (Regional Occupational Program) at Valencia where this year, our emphasis is on Principles of Teaching / Child Development, Culinary Arts, and our BITA (Building Industries and Tech Academy). If you or your student have questions about ROP classes on our campus or off-site class offerings, please contact me. Info is also on our website.
 
First to graduate high school in my family, I earned a full ride to the University of California, Riverside and pursued a B.A. degree in psychology, and graduated in 2000.  While in college, I worked with the Moreno Valley Unified School District as a substitute teacher, and with the Early Academic Outreach, University program.  My passion to guide, mentor and educate students about higher learning became my focal point.  I am happy to say this is my 17th year working in the profession as high school guidance counselor.
 
Soon after graduating UC Riverside, I began my graduate program in School Counseling and earned my Master's degree through the University of La Verne in '03.  I also interned as a school counselor at my old alma mater high school (Valley View), "GO EAGLES", and was supervised by my old high school counselor (she was actually very young, and I looked up to her), and my internship was a very unique experience!  She did inspire me through the years to become a guidance counselor!
 
I am happily married, and we have a six year old son who loves the outdoors.  Parenthood has been challenging but it is surely a blessing and I am very happy for the family that I have; including our tight knit Valencia family!  Hobbies have included things like riding horses, dancing (Ballet Folklorico), traveling, going to the beach, watching movies (Favorites:  Goonies, Sandlot, NeverEnding Story (a.k.a.-classics, and comedy), being Disneybound, and trying different ethnic foods, but remaining loyal to my Mexican antojitos and of course, spending quality time with my family and two fluffy corgis.  As a first-generation Latina college student, I cherish the importance of an education, and I aim to guide students to become successful individuals, and pursue their life-long goals.  Si se Puede!!  (You Can Do It!!)

Como consejera, sigo apoyando a los alumnos del programa de segundo idioma llamado ELD.  Tambien voy a servir al las familias con apellidos del A-H.  Soy la encargada del comite/concilio de ELAC (Comite de Padre de Alumnos de Aprendiz Ingles).  Tengo experiencia trabajando con alumnos de segundo idioma y me da mucho gusto estar aqui en Valencia y en conocer a estudiantes de todas partes del mundo, ya que somos un campo muy diverso!  Tambien soy la encargada del programa vocacional y tecnica llamada ROP.  Actualmente ofrecemos clases tecnicas en:  Estudios del desarollo infantil/ninos, Justicia criminal y ciencias forensicas, Artes culinarias y construccion y maderas.  Si a su alumno le interesan clases tecnicas/vocacionales como ROP, favor de contactarse conmigo.  Soy la primer en mi familia en graduarme de high school y irme al colegio.  Yo valoro la educación y se que es algo muy importante para nuestro futuro y bienestar.  Me recibi con un titulo de sicologia de la Universidad de California, en Riverside en el dos mil. 
 
Mi pasion en educacion y de trabajar con estudiantes y padres es mi enfoque.  Tambien trabaje en otros districtos escolares de maestra y con programas asistiendo a jovenes en Moreno Valley.  Luego me fui a estudiar a la Universidad Privada de La Verne y me recibi de nuevo con otro titulo de maestria en Consejeria Estudiantil en el 2003.
 
Me gusta pasar el tiempo con mi familia, el balet folklorico, leer, ver peliculas (especialmente las comedias), los caballos, ir a la playa, viajar a diferentes lugares, visitor Disneylandia y probar diferentes comidas de diferentes paises, pero eso si,...me encantan los antojitos Mexicanos!  Como soy primer generacion en ir al colegio en mi familia y Latina, yo veo la gran importancia que es el estudio y trato de asistir y guiar a estudiantes para que puedan advanzarse y planear sus futuros.  Siempre recuerden, no hay escusa que los detenga en poder alcanzar sus metas.
