About the counselor
Distance School Learning
Virtual Calming Room
Welcome! My name is Elena Salgado and I am happy to serve you as McKinna’s school counselor. This is my fifth year as a school counselor with the Oxnard School District. I have always been passionate about working with students through guiding them to achieve their academic goals, social and emotional development, and individual achievements. I am married, have two beautiful daughter’s, and two dogs named Max and Duke. I enjoy singing and dancing, watching movies, reading, the outdoors, spending time with family and my dogs.
I thoroughly enjoy collaborating with staff and parents to ensure student problems and concerns are being addressed in a productive manner. I strive to provide the support necessary so that each child feels capable, empowered, and confident academically, socially, and emotionally. My days consist of supporting students individually, in groups, in the classroom, in crisis counseling, and in high need student situations. I utilize our Social Emotional Learning curriculum among other resources to provide guidance lessons and presentations to students in different settings.

I encourage you to contact me whenever you have questions or concerns. I am very familiar with the challenges parents face. Raising children is hard work so I welcome the opportunity to work with you and your child in making this a successful school year!
