Natalie Maldonado » Biography


Hi there! My name is Natalie Maldonado, and I am the new School Counselor here at Howard Gardner Community School. This is my very first year as a School Counselor and I am so excited to serve our students, staff, and community. I recently graduated with my master’s degree in School Counseling from Point Loma Nazarene University. My passion is to help change lives; help my students and families get excited about the future and all the great possibilities that life has to offer and to succeed while doing so. I have an open-door policy, so please feel free to stop by with any questions you may have or simply to come say hello. I look forward to getting to know each student better and become a part of the Howard Gardner family. Go Hawk Knights!!!!
