National School Counseling Week 2020
What is your favorite quote and why?
Querer es poder! It translates, where there is a will, there is a way. I heard it from my grandmother and my mother all the time and I learned that if you have the right motivation you will achieve your goal.
What are the most rewarding parts of your job?
It gives me great satisfaction to advocate for and see my immigrant students blossom and succeed in school. It is even more gratifying when years later, I get a call or I come across students and I have a chance to sit and listen to them in sharing their journey of success after Liberty High School Academy for Newcomers. It makes my day every time a former student returns to Liberty to register their teenage son or daughter requesting I be their child’s guidance counselor.
