Hello Oliveira and Brookvale Families,

I am so excited for the 2020-2021 school year!

My name is Ms. Victoria Tanaka and this is my third year as Oliveira and Brookvale's School Counselor. I want to share my excitement and provide you with some information about the fantastic experience we’ll share together this year.

As we are learning together remotely, I am thrilled that you and your student(s) are a part of this community of learners and I am excited to help them achieve their fullest potential! Here are a few things that I would like to share:

  • It is normal for your child to feel a mix of emotions at the start of the new school year. Many students feel excited, nervous, worried, and anxious. Remember that we are in this together and that you and your family are not alone!

  • I care deeply about each and every one of my students. It is my goal to work closely with your student’s teacher, the school principal, and parents to help ensure the best academic and socio-emotional outcomes for your students this upcoming school year.

  • We will face challenges, successes, frustrations, and joys together this year. Through it all, remember that I am one of the many resources for your student and family at your school.

This school year, it is my goal to support your student’s academic and socio-emotional development. I will do this by working with your student’s teacher to provide socio-emotional lessons virtually, short term counseling with parent consent, as well as connecting families with outside resources. 

School Counseling information will continue to be shared through the school newsletter, online communication platforms, as well as your student’s Google Classroom throughout the school year.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to working with your family this year.

With gratitude and excitement,


Ms. Tanaka

School Counselor
