Welcome students to the new 2020-2021 School year!

Welcome Maya Phoenix to the new academic school year!  My name is Mrs. Melina Romero-Brambila but you probably know me more as     Ms. Romero from the College Center. 

Here is a little bit about me:

I am a Los Angeles native, born and raised.  I attended all LAUSD schools for grades K-12 and went on to graduate from Cal State LA with my Bachelor's in Social Work.  As recently as this past May, I graduated with my Master's in School Counseling and am thrilled to kick off my first official year as a counselor with our wonderful staff, students, and families at Maya. ~On a side note-my daughter just started her educational path with LAUSD as a kindergartener (pictured left) and is also beginning this year by distance learning just like you! ~

In addition to being an LAUSD graduate, I have been giving back to our LAUSD families for about the past 14 years. I first began my journey as community representative, then I became a counselor aide and now I am officially one of your school counselors! It is an honor to start my new professional journey at Maya with you all.  Although I will focus primarily on college and career access, I am definitely available for your social-emotional and academic needs as we all continue to work together virtually.  I am looking forward to working with you and your families to help you achieve academic success and your future goals and dreams.

Wishing you an amazing school year and remember Phoenix pride!

Mrs. Romero-Brambila
