Veterans Tribute CTA Counselors

Thank you for visiting VTCTA's Counseling Department Site!

The mission of the VTCTA Counseling Department is to prepare every student academically and socially for any post-secondary option they may choose, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, gender, age, orientation, genetic information, or disability. We recognize that all students enhance the learning environment through individual and shared experiences, as learning is a holistic event that happens both formally and informally, and in a variety of locations. Further, we encourage students to embrace and celebrate their diversity while making a positive impact on their communities.

Your counselors take this mission very seriously and will do everything in their power to ensure you are successful at VTCTA as well as in life after high school.

Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you would like to set up a parent/teacher conference or if you need assistance with your student at 702-799-4710 ext. 4000.

Hello Everyone, I am Mrs. Hernandez and I am thrilled to be at Veterans!

I am a native to Las Vegas (yes, we natives do exist) and have been a counselor for 11 years and a Spanish teacher for 8 years.

I enjoy playing soccer, hiking, and reading. Education is my passion and teaching students how to be successful after graduation is my goal.

I look forward to working with each and every family at Veterans!

Hi there! I'm Mrs. Devinson, and I am so excited to be your counselor this year!

This is my second year at VTCTA, but I have worked in the district as both a High School Counselor and an English teacher. I hold a BA in English, a PD in Secondary Education, and an M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in School Counseling.

I'm originally from San Diego, CA, but I've been in Las Vegas long enough to be considered a local. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or stop by my office for a visit. I am always happy to help!
