Dear students and families,
I am Dr. Karla Aguirre and it's a joy and privilege to serve in the counseling profession since 1999. I have proudly served students and families and staff as a school counselor in the Moreno Valley Unified School District since 2005.
Through a comprehensive school counseling program, my goals are to help students and families feel welcomed and safe at school, as well as support learning and growth. The comprehensive school counseling program addresses the following domains: social and emotional learning, academic, and career. I also support District and schoolwide awareness events throughout the school year.
In addition to support through the comprehensive school counseling program, please reach out to me for information about outside services to further support well-being. Please feel free to contact me direct via email: Kaguirre1@mvusd.net or communicate a message through your student's teacher.
