Welcome to Counseling Department


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome from the Counseling Department!

We hope you had a fun and relaxing summer vacation. It is our hope at GBA that this year will be full of successful experiences for all students.

As School Counselors, our primary responsibilities are to promote the academic, personal, and social development of all students. We look forward to offering support to the students, staff, families, and community. We will be meeting with students individually and in small groups, meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all the students and families of Global Bilingual Academy.

Any student can request to meet with one of the counselors or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent.  We encourage you to reach out if you have any concerns regarding your child. If you would like for one of us to meet with your child, please do not hesitate to contact the counseling department and respective counselors:
