GaiHello Parents/Guardians and Students,

I am happy to introduce myself as a FUSD elementary school counselor, serving Hirsch Elementary School and Leitch Elementary School. I will be supporting the personal/social, academic and college/career development of all students through school-wide programs, classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling and community resource referrals. 

About me: I earned my master's degree in counseling along with my school counseling credential from California State University, East Bay. In addition, I hold a bachelor's degree in child development with a minor in counseling from Sacramento State University.

I will be splitting my time between the two schools, with the following schedule:

  • Green: Mondays, Tuesdays and alternating Wednesdays
  • Leitch: Thursdays, Fridays and alternating Wednesdays

If you have any questions about the services and support I will be providing, please let me know. I look forward to working with and supporting you and your child this school year. 

Your School Counselor, 

Rachel Gai, M.S., PPS
