Mrs. Garcia Faber

Hello! I am the Elementary School Counselor at Manzanita! I am on-site full time & work with students, teachers, & parents  K-5.

What is my role as School Counselor?

Great question because I wear many hats! I...

- am the site coordinator for all 504 Accommodation Plans 


- teach whole group classroom lessons on social/emotional development 


- facilitate small groups (ex. New Student grps, Changing Families grps, etc.)


- see students individually to talk about challenges & changes at home, with friendships, with feelings, & academics. Students can be   parent, teacher, or self referred


- coordinate & oversee the Student Study (Intervention) Team 

-am the coordinator for our Ben's Bells Kind Campus program




My philosophy is that in order for a child to reach their full potential in the classroom, they first must be emotionally thriving individuals. Only when they are able to grow into healthy, happy young humans are they able to fully flourish and reach their best academic success. 

I have packed this website with resources- online articles, books (borrowable) for both parents & students, links for community resources- you name it. 
**these resources do not correspond to my, the school's or the district's personal views or recommendations, nor are they affiliated with any of the previously stated in any way. I simply took what resources were at hand and put them in a place that hopefully you will find easily accessible. 

Please, explore the site to learn more about awesome parent resources, my contact info, school & community   updates!
