Ms. Castelan

Hi, my name is Yesenia Castelan. I graduated from California State University, Long Beach where I earned a Master of Science degree in Counseling (option in School Counseling) and a Pupil Personnel Service Credential. Prior to that, I studied Human Services with an emphasis in Mental Health at California State University, Fullerton. While in school, I worked various job such as a  Residential Coordinator and Graduate Peer Mentor at CSULB as well as an AVID Tutor and Substitute Teacher here in SAUSD. As a Santa Ana resident, I am forever thankful to be able to work in the same community that helped raise me. When I am not at work, I enjoy playing video games, Disney, traveling National Parks, and even rock climbing. My goal as a school counselor is to provide educational assistance to students in all areas of academic, career, and social-emotional support. I look forward to meeting and working with you all! Go Eagles!
