Your School Counselors!


School Counselor image

Hello! I'm Gina Spector and this is my sixth year as a School Counselor. I have my Masters Degree in K-12 School Counseling and a Pupil & Personnel Services Credential from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Rowan University and am a Nationally Certified Counselor. I am originally from Philadelphia and moved to California in 2014! I love being involved in professional counseling organizations at the national and state level and often present at their conferences. My hobbies include collecting too many house plants, long walks, crafting, cooking, reading, traveling, and being outdoors. I am at Walteria on Tuesdays and Wednesdays working with students in 3rd-5th grades. You can contact me by email at spector.gina@tusd.org (I changed my name due to marriage over the summer so you may have my previous email, mroczka.gina@tusd.org, I will still get your emails if you use this address) or by phone at (310) 533 4487 ext. 6164.
