About Dr. Elizondo

Hello. Thank you for your interest in the SCOFFEE. 

I was a school counselor in Southern California for 7 years. I during that time, I worked in middle schools, high schools, and alternative education settings. I was a college and career counselor, and I also was a school counselor specifically for students with IEP's and 504 plans. Before that, I worked in after school programs to help students get into college. After my time as a professional school counselor, I decided to move into higher education. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in the Educational Counseling program in the LaFetra College of Education at the University of La Verne in Los Angeles, California.

Throughout my experiences, though they were all varied, I felt the important of space. I knew my office should have certain qualities to make me feel comfortable as a professional, and to make sure my students felt comfortable sharing important and personal concerns with me. 

When I earned my PhD, I did so with school counselor advocacy in mind. My goal is to help empower school counselors and to be sure they have the things they need to do their job well for their students. To do this, we first need to really understand what the important elements of school counselor practice are. This is my first attempt at gathering some of this information, and I want to thank you for helping me collect data and information that can promote proper school counseling spaces.
