My name is Cristina Villanueva, school counselor at Palmer-Laakso Elementary School. I have served as a school counselor for 9 years. I look forward to working with PLE Panthers to help foster their Social Emotional Learning which is a process through which children understand & manage their emotions, set & achieve goals, demonstrate empathy for others, form positive relationships, maintain friendships, and demonstrate responsible decision making. I hope everyone has a great school year. Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
