Paula Macia-Gonzalez, School Counselor
Lemon Crest School
Lakeside, CA 92040
Hello! My name is Paula Macias-Gonzalez and I am honored to be the new school counselor for Lemon Crest Elementary School. I am very excited to meet you all and join this wonderful school community and team. As a school counselor, I look forward to supporting all students, and collaborating with parents and teachers throughout the school year.
I earned my Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Baja California, México and my Masters in School Counseling from San Diego State University. During this time, I had the opportunity to intern for Oceanside Unified School District and Poway Unified School District. Last year, I worked as a school counselor for San Diego Unified School District where I gained valuable experience serving students and their families.
Growing up, I moved between San Diego and Ensenada before finally settling in San Diego 5 years ago. My husband and I have two wonderful children, together we enjoy watching movies, hiking and playing soccer. I also love puzzles, reading and board games!
As a school counselor, my role is to work with all students in meeting their academic, career and social/emotional needs. This could include working in a classroom setting, individually or in groups. Also, I am here to support teachers, staff and administration through collaboration and consultation.
It is my hope for all students to reach their academic goals and feel successful in school. I will work every day to support you and your student in their academic journey. Please feel free to reach out to me and I will work with you and your student to help them reach their goals.
