    About the School Counseling Program

    Felipe Zanartu  

    My name is Felipe R. Zañartu, and I was born in the United States in San Diego, CA.   I am a 2nd generation Chilean American born and raised in San Diego, CA.  I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree at California State University San Marcos. I earned my masters of science degree in School Counseling at San Diego State University in 2011. 

    I am passionate about the field of school counseling ensuring that its comprehensive data and it reaches every student!  I work to use technology to push the importance of good habits and good mental health for all!  I love working with students to remove barriers to learning.   I try to use media as a tool to help build social skills and life-long habits.  I am dedicated to searching for all the talents, skills and intelligence that exist in all students.  I believe that all students are capable of success, NO EXCEPTIONS!

    What teachers are saying about Mr. Zanartu
    "Mr. Zanartu recently taught 4 lessons in my classroom.  The lessons were highly engaging with lots of opportunities for all of the students to be involved. There was physical movement, singing, and puppets to reinforce the main ideas of the lessons.  The students looked forward to his visits.”
    1st Grade Teacher
    "Mr. Zañartu’s are great. The kids are engaged and it was right at their level of understanding. They looked forward to your lesson every day. Better yet, they have carried over what they learned into their behavior in the classroom and on the playground."
    2nd Grade Teacher
    "Mr. Zanartu came in last week to work with my third grade class. He incorporated role playing, song, and movement to teach them how to handle a variety of situations relevant to making good choices for third graders. This was most helpful to my group as the majority of them need such exposure to help them in this upcoming year  as Avaxat citizens to make smart decisions and use appropriate behaviors. The power point videos were engaging. I hope he comes back to reinforce the song and movements with them and use throughout the year."
