I am Raquel Tucker the 7th grade counselor at Arrowview middle school. This is my third year as a counselor. Prior to this I was a social worker for a private foster agency where I worked for four years. I completed my undergraduate at the University of California of Riverside with a Bachelors of Arts in Sociology. I obtained my Masters degree in school counseling at California State University San Bernardino. I graduated from Perris High School. I was inspired to be a counselor because in high school I was an ESL (English as a Second Language) student and the ESL classes at that time were not college preparatory classes. A teacher talked to me and educated me about college. This teacher would send me to all of the college presentations that were available at my school. I believe every student has the potential to achieve their goals. For many students one person in their school experience has made that difference for them and I hope to be able to do that for our students.
| Hello my name is Andrea Lujano-Calderon. I was born and raised in Northern California, and graduated from Bishop Union High School. I’ve been working as a counselor since 2002. This is my third year working as a counselor for Arrowview. I am currently the 8th grade counselor and AVID counselor. I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology from San Diego State University in 2000. I then received my Masters in Counseling and my P.P.S Credential in 2002 from the University of San Diego. I am passionate about School Counseling and truly enjoy working with our students, and helping them search for their individual potential. I really enjoy working with the students, parents, and faculty/staff at Arrowview; it’s always an adventure. On my time off I enjoy water sports, traveling, and sewing.
My name is Kimberly Telphy, I am currently the 6th grade counselor at Arrowview Middle School. I have been with the San Bernardino City Unified School District since 2006, bringing a wealth of knowledge and leadership to the counseling department. My educational background is diverse, giving numerous perspectives on how to connect and counsel students. In 2004, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences with a minor in Psychology from Chapman University in Orange County, California. In 2006, I earned a Masters of Arts degree in Education along with a Pupil Personnel Services credential in School Counseling from the prestigious University of Redlands in Redlands, California. Prior to working as a counselor, I devoted several years to working in the medical field as a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer and Laboratory Director, but found that my passion truly was in helping youth. “I have always been passionate about counseling and most of all, helping students stay focused on their educational goals and potential. My goal as a counselor is to make believers out of our students by reminding them that they can do anything they put their mind to because if they first believe, they will achieve and succeed!”
