Nia Carranza - Counselor
The guidance and counseling program is an essential part of the overall school experience. It is my deepest hope that every school year be filled with possibilities and accomplishments for all students. It is a privilege and joy to work with the students, parents, community, and staff here at Skaggs!
I do whole group counselor lessons every two weeks with all of the students in the building. Additionally, I form small groups each semester for new students, building friendships, changing families, study skills, confidence, etc. Students also visit with me one-on-one as needed. In addition to working with students, I organize parenting workshops, have implemented many programs in the building, help with various testing, and plan fun-filled special weeks for the campus. Additionally, I am a member of the Multi-Tiered System & Support Team (MTSS), which helps to plan strategies for student success. In my free time I always stay alert for any crisis that may arise!
