Counselor, Carpinteria High School
Why did you come to the Forum this year?
I wanted to get the big picture, get some big ideas to bring back to our school district. We apply for grants all the time, and we’re always looking to improvise and be flexible and progressive with our programs for our students.
What sessions are you most looking forward to?
I want to make sure our students are poised to be able to have access to a four-year college education, and I need to know how to best prepare them. Our school is looking to broaden our STEM program so I am looking to learn how to expand diversity in our STEM classes because we don’t currently have a lot of diversity. I’m also looking at the financial sessions since I come from a predominantly low-income school, so the finances for my parents trying to get [their kids] into college is paramount.
