Hi. My name is Michelle McKenzie. I am one of the counselors at Hale Charter Academy . I love my job! I feel so fortunate to be able to come to a job each day that I truly love. My job is to help students experience academic, behavioral, emotional, and social success. I am also the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) coordinator and counselor. I am the sponsor of the H.E.A.R.T program which is a conflict resolution group for natural and elected leaders. I facillitate Impact groups where students have a safe place to discuss struggles they are dealing with. My goal is to have every student leave Hale Charter Academy feeling confident that they can be successful high school students. My dream for each student is that they feel important and empowered and have the self-respect to follow their dreams!
Now some information about myself: I graduated from Cal State Northridge with a BA in Sociology. I earned my counseling credential and Masters Degree in School Counseling from California Lutheran University. I love spending time with my husband and two sons; one graduated from Cal State Fullerton and the other attends Sonoma State University. Please feel free to contact me regarding any questions or concerns. I am here to support you in anyway that I can.
