Counselor's Corner!

Hello students and families!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!

I am so happy and excited to be back as the school counselor for Cabrillo and Forest Park Elementary schools. Most may remember me as Ms. Potosme, but this year I will be going by Mrs. Amezcua as I got married during the summer break. Though we are beginning the school year through distance learning, I want to make sure that you are aware of who I am, what I do to support students and families, and how you can get in touch with me. 

As a professional school counselor, I aim to build a safe and welcoming environment for all students. I am an advocate for students and work with the necessary stakeholders in order to foster students' growth and support their academic, career, and social-emotional development. 

Through a comprehensive school-counseling program, I strive to create a school environment where students can have the ability to feel empowered, supported, and confident to reach their goals. The following are services I provide:

  • One-on-one counseling sessions
  • Group counseling sessions
  • Classroom counseling lessons
  • Open collaboration and communication with parents/guardians to support student success
  • Support school personnel
  • Collaboration and consultations 
  • Crisis counseling
  • Community resources and referrals

I will be splitting my time between both schools as follows:

  • Cabrillo: Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays
  • Forest Park: Thursdays and Fridays

I am so thankful to be part of Cabrillo and Forest Park. Let's make the best out of this school year!

Stay safe and healthy, 

Mrs. Amezcua, M.S, PPS
