Beyond proud to be a part of the Bulldog Counseling Team! I am a proud first-generation immigrant latina, from Baja California, who has always had a passion for working with youth. I grew up in the city of Baldwin Park and I have been an educator since 2016, servicing at-risk youth and the special needs population. I aspire to continue the mission to support and guide students in their college and career, social-emotional, and academic goals. Throughout that journey of guidance, I enjoy building relationships with students and watching them blossom into young adults excited about what their future life paths have in store.
Have a great Bulldog day!

Serves Me-R, Puente and Dual Enrollment

I’m thrilled to join the counseling team at my alma mater! I’m a first-generation latina, born and raised in Pasadena, and I’m beyond excited about working with students in my community. My interest in education and counseling started during my time as a student at PHS, so I look forward to guiding and empowering students to pursue their passions. I’m a huge advocate for higher education and have experience working at the 2 year and 4 year college level. In addition to helping students prepare for life after high school, I look forward to supporting their socioemotional and academic needs. Overall, I hope to make our student’s time at PHS as significant as it was for me!

Mrs. Elana Silverstein

I am excited to be joining the PHS team this year and looking forward to working with high schoolers for the first time! I was born and raised in Long Beach and currently reside in Highland Park with my husband and many fur babies. My favorite part about being a counselor is getting to know my students and what has shaped them into the young adults they have become, and even more so, discussing their visions and paths for their futures. I'm looking forward to many years to come as a Bulldog!
