You can call me Miss Saguto and I am the new School Counselor here at Pleasant Grove Middle School. As the School Counselor I focus on the social/personal , academic and career exploration needs of our students. I meet with students both on a individual level and in a group settings. I will also be in the classrooms throughout the year providing curriculum related to mental health, organization, social skills, study skills and more. It is my job to work collaboratively with parents, teachers, students and support staff to help students succeed academically.
A little about myself. I am originally from the Northern Bay area and I am really excited about my move to the warmer weather here. I received my Bachelors from University Of California, Davis where I double majored in Psychology and Communication. I am completing my Masters of Science in Counseling at Sacramento State University. I have been working with students for 8 years in a variety of capacities. I have been fortunate enough to be able to travel all over the world and find it a passion to discover new places. When I am not counseling I am traveling, taking lots of photos and playing with dogs.
Parent conferences and consultation are an important part of my job. If you have specific concerns regarding your child that may impact their school success please reach out to me.
