Sara Alvarez
Administrative Assistant for Counseling

This is my third year here at Jesuit and I’m so happy to be a part of this wonderful school. I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri which is where I was an elementary school teacher. I moved to California about 9 years ago and really enjoy it. I’ve known since I was in elementary school that I wanted to work in Education. While living in California, I became a Test Center Manager for Pearson where I oversaw many facets of test administration for various exams given at the test center. My husband is an alum of JHS and always speaks so highly of it.

This is my twelfth school year working in the Counseling Department at Jesuit High School and have held the Director of Counseling Services position since 2017. I earned my BA in Liberal Studies from Sacramento State with the intent of teaching in the elementary schools. Many years later, I found a home among the wonderful faculty and staff at Jesuit and was inspired to go back to school for my Masters in Educational Counseling. I absolutely love working at Jesuit and being a part of this school community. I am truly fortunate to be able to continue working with students in this role and look forward to an exciting year.
