Meet Your Counselors!

Welcome to EVC Counseling, the Home of the Bruins!


Middle School is an exciting yet challenging time for students, their parents and teachers. During this time passage from childhood to adolescence, middle school students are characterized by a need to explore a variety of interests, connecting their learning in the classroom and school environment to its practical application in life and work.

My mission is to assist all students to reach their full potential. I look forward to enhancing the learning process and promoting academic, career, and social/emotional development and support.

My name is Priscilla Ponce-Venegas, you can call me Ms. Ponce. This will be my second year as a counselor here at EVC. As your counselor, I am here to support YOU. In middle school, you will experience events that shape the person you are and hope to become. Our experiences can have its advantages, as well as limitations that can be difficult to overcome. These difficulties can come up anywhere from our personal lives, our relationships, friendships, school, etc. Counseling is a place where we can explore and discover how to work through and overcome the good and the bad that cross our paths.


Feel free to reach out by phone or email if you have any questions, concerns, or just feel like checking in!
