• Hello Parents/Guardians and Students,

    Rachel Gai photo I am happy to introduce myself as a new FUSD elementary school counselor, serving Hirsch Elementary School and Green Elementary School and I am very excited to become a part of these two wonderful school communities. I hope to build meaningful relationships with each and every one of our students while collaborating with parents, teachers, staff and administrators to ensure the success of all students.  

    I will be supporting the personal/social, academic and college/career development of all students through school-wide programs, classroom guidance lessons and small group counseling. 

    About me: I earned my master's degree in counseling along with my school counseling credential from California State University, East Bay. In addition, I hold a bachelor's degree in child development with a minor in counseling from Sacramento State University.

    I will be splitting my time between the two schools, with the following schedule:

    • Green: Mondays, Tuesdays and alternating Wednesdays
    • Hirsch: Thursdays, Fridays and alternating Wednesdays

    Please take some time to browse my webpage to learn more about the new school counseling program. If you have any questions about the services and support I will be providing, please let me know. I look forward to working with and supporting you and your child this school year. 

    Your School Counselor, 

    Rachel Gai, M.S., PPS
