Wanda Montemayor started at O Henry Middle School as Counselor in 2009, leading group counseling, individual counseling and providing academic services. Each and every year, Wanda has directed a student-led mosaic art project. These students are involved with after school Art Club, group counseling, and various workshops, and are empowered by allowing them to help design these public art projects around the school.
            All the tiles for the Mosaic Project are handmade and glazed by the students. They cut the glass, nip the titles and adhere all the pieces to the mosaic surface. Wanda has directed four community art projects on campus that beautified and fostered a sense of ownership and pride ownership by students and staff.
            Wanda also supervises graduate student interns at O Henry, providing over 3,500 hours of direct services to school-aged children. She has also developed an after school open studio program for "at risk" students and a Peer Mentoring Support program. She has conducted multiple group counseling sessions each week which address the various needs of the students such as loss and grief, domestic violence, sexual trauma, anger management, enhancing social skills, incarcerated loved ones, and self-esteem building. Wanda has also served on Campus Advisory Counsel and served as liaison to Con Mi Madre, SafePlace, and Seedling Foundation. She has been an amazing asset to O Henry Middle School and has continued loving her work.
