Counselor's Corner


     Guidance and Counseling Department’s Mission is to implement a comprehensive school counseling program to promote student success through academic achievement, promote prevention and intervention activities to provide a safe and nurturing environment, provide social/emotional and career development, and increase student’s admittance and success in institutions of higher learning.


     As the Counselor at O. Salinas Elementary, the care of your children is extremely personal.  The trust to teach, guide and protect them is our principle drive.  I am here for all our students as they meet academic, social and emotional challenges throughout this school year.  Parents and family are the foundation, so please contact me to bridge our resources for students’ success.
