Stacy Coronado

 School Counselor 

I began working at PSIS in 2016. I have a M.Ed. in guidance and Counseling. I have 26 years of experiences as a Social Worker in the field of Child Welfare.

 

I have three daughters and eight grandchildren.  I have a large extended family whom are loyal, loving, and just good people.

I like to bead, sew, quilt, weave, read, play stick game, and just being with my family.

 

My decision to leave my career of 22 years and pursue school counseling at PSIS came from the desire make a positive impact on the youth of my community. I believe in our tribal youth, and their abilities to become our future leaders who can lead our Tribes in a positive direction. I strongly believe our cultural values and the power that our language revitalization will have in healing the historical and trauma that our community faces.

I came to PSIS to work with my peers to move to the forefront the business of building the future leaders, the guardians of our culture and the speakers of our language. I came because I believe in the Vision Statement of PSIS.

I am hopeful that we as a staff are able to be creative and patient enough to see the hidden potential of each student and are able to help each student discover their potential. It is my hope that through cultural and language revitalization efforts we can provide a centered and holistic form of education for our students. That we no longer try to fit into a box but we build a box that will fit our unique Native American experiences and views.

 My dream for PSIS is that we become one of the first full immersion K-9 Tribal Schools.  That our language and culture are no longer viewed as special programming, but necessary programming.  It is my dream that PSIS will be able to provide for all our student’s needs, educational, emotional, and health.
