School Counseling Team

Sara Martinez, School Counselor and 504 Coordinator This is my 7th year in education. In addition to school counseling, I have worked as a long-term substitute teacher, teacher of Culinary Arts and English Language Arts, and attendance success coach. I grew up in Taos County, graduated from Questa High School and earned degrees from New Mexico State University (BA), Colorado State University (MS), Santa Fe Community College (Secondary Teaching Certificate) and New Mexico Highlands University (MA). Along with my husband, we love being able to raise our two kids in the mountains and close to family. I also enjoy writing and cooking/baking. My goal is to help support students to live their best school lives but also to prepare for their lives after high school.

Melissa Ann Montoya Rehabilitation Counselor My passion and purpose is working with teens and helping them achieve and find their purpose in their lives by providing a safe space to explore their dreams and ambitions. I thrive in group settings offering student group and individual counseling. I graduated from Dallas Baptist University with a BA in Psychology and have a lot of experience working with youth in groups. I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, snowshoeing, gardening and spending time with my dog "Dusty".
