Tesoro High School currently has two full-time credentialed professional school counselors on staff, Jaime Runyan and Erin McMichael. Any Tesoro student can see either counselor as they are not assigned by alphabet like they are with academic advisors.
The counselors are available for appointments M-F from 6:30am-3:00pm.
Phone (949) 234-5310
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
They are also available via SchoolLoop.
It has been a pleasure serving as Tesoro's School Counselor since its inaugural year in fall 2001.
I am a graduate of San Clemente High School, in Capistrano Unified. I went on to receive my Bachelors in Psychology and a minor in Sociology from Purdue University and earned my Masters in Psychology from Pepperdine University.
I have always made it a priority to work with students and advocate for them. I worked with Capistrano Unified and Pepperdine University through the Safe Schools Act and have teamed up with the PRYDE program through the Orange County Sheriff Coroners Department and Pepperdine University. I have worked with all age groups, but high school is where my true passion lies.
I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful children and a mastiff. :)
I am honored to be a part of the Titan Family.
Hello Titans! I joined the Tesoro guidance team in 2015. I am originally from Palm Springs, and currently live in Los Angeles (yes, I commute). I earned my B.A. degree in Psychology in 2011, my M.S. degree in Counseling (Option in School Counseling) and my California Pupil & Personnel Services Credential in 2015, all from California State University, Northridge. I was a research assistant in the social psychological research lab at Yale University in 2010.
My counseling philosophy is that I value and respect each student for their uniqueness and cultural worldviews; I focus on strengths while providing help with academic or personal life challenges. It is my aim to help students help themselves so that they can be successful when navigating their chosen life path.
My interests and hobbies include spending time with my family and pets, singing karaoke (I was a Karaoke DJ for 6 years to help pay my college tuition, lol!), watching great films, doing crossword puzzles, reading, Netflix binging, volunteering for animal rescues, and discovering delicious restaurants.
