Welcome!

We are Wendy Romero and Cynthia Saenz the school counselors at McWhirter Elementary. Our mission as school counselors is to help all students reach their full potential personally, emotionally, and academically. As part of the program, we will offer classroom guidance lessons, individual counseling, group counseling, consultation with parents and teachers, and opportunities for parent education. As school counselors, our role does not allow us to provide long-term therapy to our students. However, we can provide families with the necessary resources and information if a need for or interest in long-term therapy arises.


¡Bienvenidos!


Nosotros somos Wendy Romero y Cynthia Saenz, las consejeras de la escuela McWhirter. Nuestra misión como consejeras es ayudar a todos los estudiantes para que puedan alcanzar su máximo potencial personal, emocional y académicamente. Como parte del programa estaremos ofreciendo lecciones en el salón de clases, consejería individual de acuerdo con las necesidades del estudiante, consejería en grupos, consulta con los padres y maestros al igual que talleres para padres. Como consejeras escolares, no podemos brindar terapia a largo plazo a nuestros estudiantes. Sin embargo, podemos proveer a las familias los recursos e información necesaria si surge la necesidad o el interés de una terapia a largo plazo.

¡Estamos muy contentas de poder trabajar con usted y su hijo(a) durante este nuevo año escolar!
