Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
My name is Elizabeth Mejia Seamans and I am one of the A-G Counselors at Garfield. I am super excited to be joining the Garfield family. Prior to joining A-G, I was an English teacher for eight years, an academic counselor for 14 years and a GEAR UP counselor for one year. I have always had a love and a passion for working with high school students and families to help them accomplish their academic goals. I do not replace the academic counselor, but am an extra support. My goals as an A-G counselor are to increase graduation rates, improve attendance, decrease drop rates, promote college readiness and increase A-G course completion. As your A-G Counselor I want you to know that you are not alone on your high school journey. I can't wait to meet you in the near future, but for now it will be virtually. I will be sending you messages on resources and interventions to ensure you are well informed and taking advantage of these opportunities. If you have any questions, concerns or would like to check in please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, send me a message on schoology or call me at 213-725-5600 extension 4004.
