Welcome Back!

From the School Counselor, Ms. Maya

Dear Rainier View Families,

Welcome back to Rainier View!  I hope that you had a safe and healthy summer enjoying the Seattle sunshine.  My name is Maya Montemayor, and I am thrilled to be the new part-time counselor here at Rainier View!  I am eager to partner with each one of you this year!

I recently graduated from the University of Washington with my master’s degree in Social Work.  During my studies, my internships consisted of working in preschools and elementary school settings.  Every year I’ve learned different techniques to engage with students through activities that create a safe space.  I am excited for the opportunities that this school year will bring!

Although this school year may look a little different, I look forward to sharing my ideas with Rainier View Elementary School.  My role will be supporting you and your students so that they can be successful this school year.  My services include:

  • One on One Counseling
  • Group Counseling
  • Social Emotional Learning Groups
  • Resource Connections for Students and Families

Feel free to contact me at  mamontemayor@seattleschools.org regarding any questions you may have, or if you just want to introduce yourself 😊 I will be working Thursdays, Fridays and alternating Wednesdays.  I know you all will become familiar faces soon!
