Mrs. Mayra Martinez » Biography


I serve as a member of our Counseling Department team working with 10-12th grade students as a School Counselor.

What I Love About MD
I love helping my students on a personal level & assisting them with their immediate and future needs here at Mater Dei. I’m passionate about helping my students develop skills needed for academic success and plan for the next chapter of their life. It’s rewarding to know I’m someone my students can count on, trust, and share their feelings with.  I feel blessed to see my students find their passion, be successful, and plan for their future.

Other experience: Started at Mater Dei in 2019 and completed my counseling internship, subbed for a counselor in the Fall 2020, was at Garden Grove Unified until 2021.

Education: Master of Arts in School Counseling and Pupil Personnel Services Credential- Loyola Marymount University; Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice/Minor in Human Services – California State University, Fullerton

At MD since: 2019 returned in 2021
