Gayla Garcia


Welcome to Mrs. Sanchez (Garcia) Homepage!

I am excited to be part of your community as your child's school counselor at Longfellow Elementary School. As your child's school counselor, I am committed to helping our students achieve academic excellence, create short and long-term goals, engage in social and emotional lessons, provide a safe and respectful environment, and help our students have a positive experience now and as they pursue higher education in the future.

   Please enjoy the wonderful virtual calm room, video about big changes and feelings, links that provide resources, check-ins, and most importantly get to know Mrs. Sanchez (Garcia)- your school counselor.  

Although we are currently online, please know everyone at Longfellow is still available to help your child and family during this time.  Click the "HELP" red button if you need assistance with health and wellness concerns (counseling, medical resources, food, or basic needs), technology (getting a device/computer or internet connection), contacting your child's teacher, or other.
