Hello, my name is Wanda Moore and I am excited to be the counselor at Sunnymead Elementary. I am a 2nd year school counselor. About myself, I was born and raised in NY and moved to San Diego in 2002. I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Criminal Justice, A Master’s degree and Pupil Personnel Credential in Educational Counseling and a Post Baccalaureate in Applied Behavior Analysis. I began my career in 2002 working for the Federal Bureau of Prisons as a Correctional Officer. In 2009, I began working in Education. Over the past 10 years I have worked as a Substitute teacher for Murrieta USD and Beaumont USD, as campus security, and as a para-educator in alternative education for Lake Elsinore USD. I also worked as a Criminal Justice instructor for Brightwood College in Palm Springs. In 2016 I decided to go back to school to become a school counselor. I graduated with my Master’s Degree and Pupil Personnel Services Credential in Educational Counseling from National University in May 2018 and began working for Sunnymead Elementary in August 2018. I love being the school counselor at Sunnymead Elementary, we have the most amazing kids.
I have been married to my husband for 14 years, we have 4 beautiful children, 3 girls and 1 boy (ages 20, 19, 13, & 11) and two dogs. My family is the most important thing to me. I love to dance and will dance any chance I can. I am a certified Zumba instructor and teach classes at Crunch in Murrieta. I enjoy traveling with my family, visiting our family in NY, going to amusement parks, watching my kids play sports, going to the beach, and exploring new places with my family.
I am here to help provide support services for all students to enhance their academic, social, and emotional growth. I look forward to working with the students, parents, and staff here at SME. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions regarding your children and their social/emotional and academic well- being. I believe in working as a team to achieve optimal success for every student!
