Hello, I am Geri Martinez, your counselor while you are at Bob Miller MS.  I have been a counselor for many years, including twelve years here at Miller.  I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially hiking, bike riding or just relaxing outdoors to read or listen to a good book. I definitely enjoy my job as a counselor and working with students. I look forward to meeting all of you virtually and when we return back to school.  I realize many of you are excited and maybe nervous about coming into a new school, but you are not alone, I will help you with this transition and support you as much as possible so that you will be successful and feel better about an exciting new year.

Please email me with any questions or concerns.
