Elementary and Middle School
While I bring my professional philosophies and counseling mission to each of the sites where I work, each site has a unique student body and professional team of educators with whom I am fortunate to collaborate. I believe in supporting the strengths of the school, while looking for areas to close achievement gaps. I believe in the importance for advocating for every child by understanding issues of access, equity and educational justice. This means helping students and families navigate systems of oppression; working as a cultural mediator when necessary; and developing programming that works to close achievement gaps. Students of all races, genders, sexual orientations, classes, abilities, and spiritual orientations are welcomed and appreciated for their strengths and gifts. I recognize the importance of the family’s belief systems and practice culturally sensitive counseling; continually enhancing my own cultural competence and awareness of social justice issues facing all people.
