Mr. Truax

 Hello Tigershark Families! I hope you all had a relaxing and fun summer! I am so excited about this new school year. Tovashal is a special place to both work and learn. We have a dedicated staff who work well together. As soon as you step foot on our campus, you can feel the positive energy in the air. As we transition to a more normal school year, we will be here to support you and your child during their time here at Tovashal. 

This is my third year at Tovashal as a school counselor. I grew up in the valley and attended California Baptist University where I studied Pre-Law and Criminal Justice, along with a Minor in Spanish. I worked four school years for Hemet Unified School District as a Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports Specialist. While I worked for HUSD, I went back to CBU to get my Master’s in school counseling and PPS credential. The program was rigorous and prepared me to be a school counselor for every student, regardless of their grade level.  

I am absolutely thrilled to be here at Tovashal! The staff, students, and parents all feel like one big happy family. I am here to support students academically, social emotionally, and with their college and career readiness! Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need anything. Thank you!
