My name is Marisela Casas and I am excited to be at Ellington school. I am very excited about working with all of you and seeing all of your accomplishments. I was born in Los Angeles, California, and was raised in the Downey area. It is calming to come to Ellington and see the beautiful mountains of Azusa.I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology from the University of California Irvine and I started working for Los Angeles Unified School District as a high school credit recovery teacher. I enjoy helping students achieve their academic and career goals, so after 5 years of being a teacher, I decided to pursue my Master's Degree in School Counseling from the University of La Verne.
I have been a school counselor for over 6 years and have worked with students from Kindergarten all the way to Adult Education. I am available to help you with your academic needs, college/career plans, as well as your socio-emotional needs. School can be stressful sometimes, so it helps to talk to someone. My door is always open when you need a calming space or you can contact me via email or phone.Let's have an amazing school year.Ms. Casas
