Meet Ms. Aviña

Your Willow Elementary EL Counselor

Big picture

My Role

My name is Ms. Aviña and I am so excited to be returning to Willow as your elementary English Learner (EL) counselor this school year!

My role as the EL counselor is to support multilingual students in language acquisition, academics, and their ability to cope and adapt to a new culture and environment. We will address these areas using various services and interventions such as one-on-ones with students/parents, small group activities to enhance student language acquisition, enrichment activities/clubs that are inclusive to all cultures, and providing parents with information on EL Pathway, support services at the site, and district EL master plan through ELAC meetings.
