My name is Elizabeth Valles. I am the counselor at Alta Vista Elementary.
As the school counselor I assist the students so that they can achieve academic success. The students can come to visit the counselor when they would like to talk about their feelings or a problem they need to solve. I do guidance lessons to help students learn about being outstanding citizens. I see the students individually through individual counseling and am also working to start group counseling.
I have a master's degree in education for school counseling. This is my 13th year as a school counselor. I was a middle school counselor for about 2 years and have been an elementary school counselor for 11 years. I was a high school Social Studies teacher for 5 years before I became a counselor. I mostly taught World Geography.
I welcome the opportunity to work with students and their families.
I can be contacted Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The best time to set up an appointment for a parent conference would be after school.
