My name is VaIerie Encino-Valadez. I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas and graduated from Highlands High School. This is my 5th year at Jubilee San Antonio. I graduated with my master's degree in Counseling and Guidance in 2010 from Texas A&M University-San Antonio. I previously worked in higher education for 9+ years and gained knowledge in various areas such admissions, recruitment, scholarships, and financial aid.
My role as the College and Career Readiness Counselor is to ensure all students have a successful transition from high school to their post-secondary education. I assist students with college applications, scholarships, FAFSA/TASAFA applications, and register students for college entrance exams. I also oversee our high school dual credit program in partnership with Palo Alto College.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the movies, working on puzzles with my son, and zumba.
Wishing everyone a great 2018-2019 school year!
