Counselor's Corner

 Meet the Counselor

Hello!  My name is Tanya Magaña and I am the School Counselor at Lincoln Elementary School.  I have worked at Lincoln Elementary for 11 years and I love being a part of the  Lincoln Leopard community!  

A little about me:  I grew up in Coachella, CA with my parents and three sisters.  I played softball for 10 years and continue to love the sport today. I was very shy and quiet, and sports really helped me "break out of my shell."  I enjoy "glamping",  reading, and swimming.  My favorite place to be is the beach.

My role: I believe all students are capable of success.  Sometimes however, our students have a lot in their minds and it may become difficult to focus in the classroom. My priority as a School Counselor is to  provide students with intentional social and emotional support, through individual or small group friendship circles.  In counseling, students will have a safe environment to share their thoughts and feelings, will learn self regulation with calming and coping strategies while developing /maintaining positive self esteem. Some of the friendship circles I offer include a grief group, a divorce group, anger management, impulse control, and a friendship skills group that includes conflict solving.
