About the Counselor: My name is Candice Alvarez and I am your school counselor at Copper View Elementary school. I received my masters in school counseling from Northern Arizona University.  My favorite topic to work on with our students is career and college readiness! I love getting to know the students through our weekly guidance lessons and helping them with any academic or personal concern they may have.  I look forward to another great school year here at CVES!
