Ms. Leidi Arias

Hello Everyone!

My name is Leidi Arias and I am one of the ELD counselors who works with 9th-12th grade ELD/LEP students whose last names are Magdaleno-Z. I am also the counselor for 9th-12th grade students whose last names are Villalobos-Z. I am a proud Mexican-American/Chicana and North Bay Area native but Sacramento is my 2nd home as I went to high school and college out there. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Minor in Counseling from Sacramento State and I earned my Master's degree in School Counseling and P.P.S. credential from Sonoma State. I am a sports enthusiast, dancer, bookworm, and a big-time foodie haha! I've been at Pittsburg High since 2017 and I absolutely enjoy working with our students, parents and community members. For me, it is truly an honor and privilege to work with the students and families that I get to work with and I am very committed to helping our students reach their maximum potential and ultimately, I am very committed to helping them reach their goals!
