Sandra Carrillo - Counselor

Carrillo-Pinedo, Sandra.jpg

            Hello Bronco families! My name is Sandra Carrillo-Pinedo and I am excited for another year at Sister Bailey ES as your School Counselor. I am originally from Los Angeles, California and a former CCSD student. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Nevada State. I received my Master's degree in School Counseling from Touro University. 

            I enjoy spending time outdoors, including camping, hiking, running and horseback riding. I love traveling and take advantage of that whenever I can. I also take pleasure in reading, two of my favorite authors include Reyna Grande and Nicholas Sparks. I enjoy watching movies based on true stories, as they always have an inspiring message or a lesson to be learned from past experiences. 

            It has been really rewarding being the School Counselor at Sister Bailey ES for the last three years and transitioning into my fourth year. Every school year is an opportunity to grow as an educator and to impact students to become the best version of themselves. I enjoy learning from each of our students and most importantly being their advocate. I look forward to the upcoming school year, along with meeting our new Broncos!

          My name is Heather Wiedenheft and I love having a job where I get to work with kids every day. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Education and a Master's Degree in both Early Childhood Education and Educational Leadership. I taught 4th and 5th grade for 18 years in  Nevada and Oregon and am currently a Behavior Strategist.

          I am originally from Eugene, Oregon and a Duck at heart. Fall is my favorite time of year. I really like college football and am very competitive so it's good that the Oregon Ducks win often!

          I am here to support you. I promise to do it with love, humor, clear boundaries, and high expectations. My greatest satisfaction is seeing former students return as the best version of themselves. I look forward to getting to know you.
