NM Public Education Department Information: Supporting Students

Hello families of Sandia Vista!

The SVE counseling program is aligned with the National Model of the

American School Counselor Association (ASCA).

My goal as a school counselor is to work in collaboration with families, teachers, and staff to support the academic, career, and personal/social development for all students. I will be working toward this goal in the following ways:

Guidance Curriculum: I will be teaching guidance lessons in classrooms throughout the school year. I will use a variety of curriculum including Ripple Effects, Second Step and Kelso's Choice . These promote social skill development, emotional regulation and problem solving.

Virtual Lunch Bunch: I am offering virtual lunch bunch groups to students so that they have an opportunity to socialize with their grade level peers from other virtual classes! Please email me at if you are interested in your child participating.

Individual Counseling: Students may be referred to me for individual counseling if they need additional support at school or if community information is needed for outside counseling services.

Collaboration: Please call me at 338-2526, ext. 54320 if there is anything I can help you with or if you have any questions.
