Kristin Encinias, Counselor    kencinias@tecsalvord.org

Hello! I am Kristen Encinias, from Las Vegas, NM, a graduate of West Las Vegas High School and New Mexico Highlands University. I obtained a Bachelor Degree in Social Work and a Master of Arts degree in Guidance and Counseling with an emphasis in School Counseling. I have worked with children and adolescents for the last four years, ranging from K-12th grade. My passion for education and student success continues to grow throughout my time as a School Counselor. I value the diverse population I have been privileged to work with throughout New Mexico, especially at Tierra Encantada! I look forward to an enjoyable and successful school year!
