|Graffeo, Teri||(949) 589-6543 ex.141||Academic Advisor|
|Miller, Deborah||(949) 589-6543 ex.26004||Academic Advisor|
Academic Advisors help students reach their educational and career goals by providing students with information and resources to help them succeed in reaching their individual goals. They can assist in this process by helping students create an educational plan, understand their options, determine resources and, when necessary identify alternatives.
Academic Advisors work with parents, students and teachers to assist students in meeting their individual needs through individual meetings, group presentations, and leading parent-teacher-student conferences. Academic advisors meet with students struggling in academics as well as students seeking academic guidance and planning throughout the school year. Their duties include most aspects involved with academic planning, career guidance, and placement testing as required.
Students are assigned to an academic advisor alphabetically, according to their last name. Although making an appointment is advised, students are always welcome to stop in to see their academic advisor during non-class time if they have questions or need assistance. The Las Flores Middle School Academic Advisors are Debbie Miller (last names A-P) and Teri Graffeo (last names Q-Z).
If you have questions or concerns related to a student's academic performance, our Academic Advisors will do their best to assist you in meeting the needs of your children.

- improve academic achievement by promoting student motivation and engagement, conducting psychological and academic assessments, collecting and interpreting student and classroom data, and reducing inappropriate referrals to special education
- promote positive behavior and mental health by improving student communication and social skills, assessing students emotional and behavioral needs, and promoting positive peer relationships and social problem solving
- support diverse learners through assessment for diverse learning needs, plan appropriate Individual Education Programs for students with disabilities, and monitor and communicate with parents about student progress
- create a safe, positive school climate by supporting social-emotional learning, participate in the implementation of school-wide positive behavioral supports, identify at risk students and school vulnerabilities, and provide crisis prevention and intervention services when necessary
