Counselor's Corner - Middle

MLA Middle - Sara Pekny

My name is Sara Pekny. I am the new school counselor here at MLA Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year! I am originally from Fort Worth, Texas. I went to the University of North Texas for a degree in Social Sciences with a focus on psychology. After graduating, I worked for a Spanish immersion preschool.


I recently graduated from Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education for my Master's degree in school counseling. As someone who suffered from racial microaggressions from an early age, I am very passionate about helping marginalized populations in the Portland area. I am happy to provide resources for those in need.


Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have questions or concerns regarding your child. Now let's rock this school year!
